It's time for a young African American to meet with his white girlfriend's parents for a weekend in their secluded estate in the woods, but before long, the friendly and polite ambience will give way to a nightmare.
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Chris and his girlfriend Rose go upstate to visit her parent's for the weekend. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.

Jordan Peele: [TSA] Rod Williams, a TSA agent, is a highly sympathetic character. Jordan Peele has said he has general affection for TSA screeners and doesn't just see them as annoyances at the airport, and several Key and Peele (2012) skits centered around TSA agents in various settings.

Rose is supposed to be a couple of years younger than her brother Jeremy, but in the photo and video of the family taken in front of the house when they were children, the young Jeremy is significantly shorter than the young Rose. In the DVD commentary, Jordan Peele admitted that they had not seen the two child actors standing next to each other until they were already cast and preparing to film, and he did not have the heart to fire the young boy for being too short.

You know what I say? I say one down, a couple hundred thousand to go. I don't mean to get on my high horse, but I'm telling you, I do not like the deer. I'm sick of it; they're taking over. They're like rats. They're destroying the ecosystem. I see a dead deer on the side of the road and I think, "That's a start."

This movie is appropriately in a genre Mr. Jordan Peele has christened, "Social Thriller". The movie creates a very unsettling feeling from the beginning that slowly builds to a crescendo, that forces the viewer to see prejudices head on. When all is said and done, you now have kind of a bird's eye view of what is wrong with society. But besides that, it hints a Hitchcock-type of thrill that is sure to deliver Goosebumps. A HUGE congratulations to Jordan Peele for hitting a HOME RUN, his first time up to bat. Looking forward to future projects from him. GO SEE, GET OUT. 😀😀
