SUMMIT, NJ - It's time to 'Get Out'.
Actually, just in time for the scariest time of the year in the Hilltop City, the Film Society of Summit will host a screening of Jordan Peele's 'Get-Out' on October 25, beginning at 7 p.m.. A post-film discussion will follow with Adam Aresty, Professor of Film at Fordham College.
'Get Out' is a pure horror film from the Emmy-winning creator-star of Comedy Central’s sketch series 'Key and Peele'. Peele wrote and directed the movie but does not act in it.
This film follows a young man who has reached a dating milestone with his girlfriend, and she invites him for a weekend getaway at the mysterious estate of her parents. At first, the young man reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
This film had its world premiere at Sundance and is 'Certified Fresh' by Rotten Tomatoes. The cast features Daniel Kaluuya, Bradley Whitford, Catherine Keener and Allison Williams.
The program will be held at MONDO, located at 426 Springfield Avenue. Tickets, priced at $12 in advance and $14 at the door, can be purchased by visiting summitfilmsociety.com or reserved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Seating is limited.
