The horror film Get Out, which stars British-Ugandan actor Daniel Kaluuya, has topped the US box office in its opening weekend, making more than $33m (£26.5m).
In an article today the UK Guardian says the film “ dares to reveal the horror of liberal racism ” in the US.
Lanre Bakare writes that the film, by US comedian Jordan Peele, “has dealt with race in America in a refreshing, funny and unflinching manner.
“The number of things Peele manages to reference is stunning: The taboo of mixed relationships, eugenics, the slave trade, black men dying first in horror films, suburban racism, police brutality.”
Quartz news website describes it as a “horror film about a young black man who falls victim to his girlfriend’s white suburban family”
