I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I know I did. MAC was together again for another weekend of adventures. They came over to my neck of the woods and we grabbed dinner at Mellow Mushroom. We had a really great night just laughing and hanging out. We originally planned on seeing Get Out Friday night, but it had a really late showing and 2/3 of us are basically grandmas.
So, we decided to see it Saturday at the Collections in Forsyth. I have been really looking forward to this movie ever since Allison Williams started promoting it on her social media. And then all of the reviews came pouring in and I had to see it.
I won’t give any spoilers but it really was amazing. It was the typical horror/suspense movie on the surface but the underlying truth of racism in America made this movie so moving and beautiful. This film sheds light on how ignorant some people are towards minorities. You are able to experience the film through Chris’s ( the protagonist) perspective. At least for me, it was really eye opening to see something firsthand that I have had the privilege not to experience.
After seeing this movie, I want to bring everyone I know to see it. I hope it opens people’s minds and brings them awareness to what happens everyday all around them.
Whoever you are or wherever you’re from, just Get Out and see this movie! (I’m sorry. I couldn’t resist.)
