GET OUT at 8:15pm
GET OUT (2017) dir Jordan Peele w/Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Lil Rel Howery [104 min; DCP]
One of the big winners of the awards season so far, Jordan Peele’s debut feature GET OUT is both a chilling thriller and a biting satire. The Boston Society of Film Critics has awarded it both their David Brudnoy Award for Best New Filmmaker and Best Actor to Daniel Kaluuya, who plays a young black man drawn into the circle of an upper-class white family whose intentions are not as progressive as they seem.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders — GLAD in memory of David Pendleton.
Tickets for this special event are $25 for the reception and film ($20 for students, seniors, and Brattle members).
Tickets for the film only are $12 ($10 for students, seniors, and Brattle members). Brattle member passes will be accepted for the film only.
