When asked about how the experience of the film and its tremendous success has changed how he approaches his career, director Jordan Peele stated, "It just allows me to trust myself a little more. There was a long time where I felt like this was going to be something I would love, but I didn't have any assurance that it would actually work or be supported. I feel like now I can commit to my instincts and work faster." See more »
When Rose's car hits the deer, the deer is moving from left to right, so it would seem the driver's side would be damaged. However, the deer is leaping high in the air at the point of impact and hits the front passenger side, thereby causing damage on that side. See more »

Get Out provided me with something I long for. The debut of a new filmmaker that makes you look hopefully into the future. Jordan Peele has done just that. He wrote and directed this smart, elegant film and even made us find a new way to classify it. Horror, comedy, drama, social satire. What matters really is that it's a first of sorts and then some. It introduced me also to a major talent in front of the camera. Daniel Kaluuya is sheer perfection. As an actor he projects and provokes empathy. Whatever your race or races you will be in his shoes, feeling what he's feeling. I was him, throughout. The gasps of fear mixed with the bursts of laughter from the audience - me included - made Get Out one of the most rewarding film experiences of 2017. Kudos also to Bradley Whitford and the phenomenal Catherine Keener. They are terrifyingly recognizable and what about Caleb Landry Jones? Menacing enough and comic enough - he reminded me of Peter, Chris Elliott's character in Everybody Loves Raymond - to be all the things he needed to be. Perfect. As is the human relief provided by the wonderful Marcus Henderson. As you may gather I'm celebrating. So, Mr Peele, thank you very much.
