Here is the synopsis for “Get Out”:
In Universal Pictures’ “Get Out,” a speculative thriller from Blumhouse Productions and the mind of Jordan Peele, when a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, “Sicario”) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, “Girls”), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, “Captain Phillips”) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, “The Cabin in the Woods”).
At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship. As the weekend progresses, though, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, “Get Out” is written and directed by Jordan Peele (“Key & Peele”) and produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum as well as Sean McKittrick (“Donnie Darko,” “Bad Words”), Edward H. Hamm Jr. (“Bad Words”) and Jordan Peele.
The film also stars Caleb Landry Jones (“X-Men” series), Stephen Root (“No Country for Old Men”), Milton Howery (“The Carmichael Show”), Betty Gabriel (“The Purge: Election Year”), Marcus Henderson (“Pete’s Dragon”) and Lakeith Stanfield (“Straight Outta Compton”).

HollywoodChicago.com works hard to coordinate our giveaways for you with the movie studios. If you enter to win and are fortunate enough to be awarded, we expect you to attend. If you reply saying you can’t attend – or don’t show up at all without notifying us – that opportunity goes to waste and another lucky HollywoodChicago.com winner misses out on enjoying what you would have. We use various forms of tracking technologies to know whether or not you attended. When you win and don’t attend, reputation points will be counted against you and you’ll win less frequently. If you enter to win, please make sure you can attend if you do win. Thank you.
