QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A young black man must contend with veiled racism and then outright terror when his white girlfriend takes him to meet her parents and others for the first time.
PLOT:
Chris Washington (DANIEL KALUUYA) is a young photographer who's madly in love with his girlfriend, Rose Armitage (ALLISON WILLIAMS). Even so, he doesn't think it's a good idea that she hasn't told her parents -- neurosurgeon Dean (BRADLEY WHITFORD) and psychiatrist Missy (CATHERINE KEENER) -- that he's black and that they're going to learn that during their upcoming visit. Even Chris' TSA agent buddy, Rod Williams (LIL REL HOWERY), thinks it's a bad idea.

But Rose reassures Chris that her parents will be completely cool with that and they indeed seem that way even if Dean comes off a bit overzealous in welcoming Chris to the family. The same can't be said for Rose's brother, Jeremy (CALEB LANDRY JONES), however, who's somewhat aggressive, while the Armitages' African-American help -- Georgina (BETTY GABRIEL) the maid and Walter (MARCUS HENDERSON) the groundskeeper -- give off a weird and creepy vibe that Chris can't quite shake.

Things get worse when the family throws a party where mostly older white folks -- including blind art dealer Jim Hudson (STEPHEN ROOT) -- show up. And what seems like friendliness likewise comes off as unsettling, including from the lone black man, Logan (LAKEITH STANFIELD), who's there with a much older white woman and behaves somewhat like Georgina and Walter.

From that point on and as things start to go downhill from there, Chris tries to get Rose to leave with him, but must contend with the fact that Missy might have a grip on him from a previous hypnosis session.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
