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. (IMDb.com)

"You can understand the temptation for the overwhelmingly white critical fraternity to view it through their lens — what better way to prove how woke you are than to laugh at yourself, to eagerly point out that a film this pointed is pointed at you? It’s just another way to erase the black perspective — the minority experience — from one of its rare positions on centre stage. Conceptually, Get Out works because of the way a great many people react to interracial relationships." Hari Raj in Junkee http://junkee.com/get-out-white-woke/102624
