Can an impeccably crafted horror film tackle issues of racism and white privilege in America while also inspiring sold-out audiences to laugh and clap in unison? Yes it can, and Jordan Peele's (KEY & PEELE) feature debut does so with style, wit and humor. When Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) embarks on a weekend trip to meet his girlfriend's (Allison Williams) parents, he has minor reservations. At first, Chris reads the family's accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's newly revealed interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries leads Chris to a terrifying truth. With Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Lakeith Stanfield and Stephen Root. Among the film's many accolades are top nominations from the Golden Globes, PGA, WGA, DGA and Independent Spirit Awards. An AFI AWARDS Official Selection. Four Oscar® nominations: Best Picture, Best Actor (Kaluuya), Best Director (Peele) and Best Original Screenplay (Peele).
