Mag­nif­i­cent so­cial hor­ror that – in im­i­ta­tion of Guess Who’s Com­ing

to Din­ner – sends a white girl and her black boyfriend to her par­ents in lib­eral sub­ur­bia. Here is a film about racism in a sup­pos­edly post-racial so­ci­ety that fea­tures few acts of ex­plicit prej­u­dice. The film builds el­e­gantly from sin­is­ter omens to full-on vis­cera-gur­gling may­hem. But Get Out has more to do with dis­com­fort and envy than blind ha­tred. What a strange marvel it is. 15A cert, gen re­lease, 104 min
