Directed by Jordan Peele (USA 2019, 121 min.). Digital. English with open captions.

Accompanied by her husband, son and daughter, Adelaide Wilson (Lupita Nyong’o) returns to the beachfront home where she grew up as a child. Haunted by a traumatic experience from the past, Adelaide grows increasingly concerned that something terrible is going to happen. Her worst fears soon become a reality when four masked strangers descend upon the house, forcing the Wilsons into a fight for survival. With this ambitious follow-up to his groundbreaking smash hit Get Out, Jordan Peele cements his status as a leading auteur of his generation.
