GET OUT (2017)
Get Out || Black photographer Chris Washington is apprehensive as he prepares to meet the family of his white girlfriend, Rose Armitage. Later, at the Armitage house in rural Upstate New York, Rose’s brother Jeremy and their parents, neurosurgeon Dean and hypnotherapist Missy, make disconcerting comments about black people. Chris witnesses strange behavior from the estate’s black housekeeper Georgina and groundskeeper Walter.
When Chris is unable to sleep, Missy pressures him into a hypnotherapy session to cure his smoking addiction. In a trance, he expresses guilt over his mother’s death in a hit-and-run when he was younger, and sinks into a void Missy calls the “Sunken Place”. The next morning, he assumes that the encounter was a dream, but cigarettes now repulse him. Georgina unplugs his phone “accidentally,” draining its battery.
However Dozens of wealthy white people arrive for the Armitages’ annual get-together. They express admiration for Chris’s physique and for black figures such as Tiger Woods. Jim Hudson, a blind art dealer, takes particular interest in Chris’s photography skills. Chris meets another black man, Logan King, who behaves strangely and is married to a much older white woman. Finally He calls his friend, TSA agent Rod Williams, about the strange behavior. Chris tries to photograph Logan inconspicuously, but when his flash goes off, Logan becomes hysterical, shouting at Chris to “get out”.
