Before the end of 2016, promos began for the Get Out movie. Clearly, the topic was race, again touching on the dynamics between the relations of black and white people. Created by Jordan Peele, Get Out starred Daniel Kaluyya and Allison Williams.
The movie goes deep into race and led to “The Sunken Place” becoming a phrase in real life. No film, in 2017, was as impacting as Get Out and the movie has become an undeniable classic. With the year coming to a close, Get Out remains top dog.
Even with the Academy categorizing Get Out as a comedy, the ones who recognize the movie know what it is. Not only does LaKeith Stanfield, of “Atlanta” fame appear, but as does Erika Alexander, Cousin Pam on “The Cosby Show” and Max on “Living Single.” The casting, plus the unique storytelling makes Get Out the film of the year.
