Get Out

Saturday night [December 16], Sharon and I watched Get Out as an HD rental on the AppleTV. The film has been chosen by the National Board of Review, the American Film Institute, and Time magazine as one of the top 10 films of 2017. At the 75th Golden Globe Awards, Get Out received two nominations: Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Actor – Comedy or Musical for Daniel Kaluuya.

Get Out is a 2017 horror film written and directed by comedian Jordan Peele. It stars Daniel Kaluuya as Chris, a black man who visits the family of his white girlfriend.  All of the family's servants are black and act strangely. Allison Williams as the girlfriend and Bradley Whitford as the girlfriend's father costar.

Sharon liked the film more than I did; she gave it an "8." With what looks like a weaker field this year, it is going to be interesting to see if Get Out gets an Oscar nomination for best picture. I would probably bet that it doesn't...
