Dear Friends and Film Fans,
You will want to get out of your homes this coming Friday, April 13th to come to Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church to watch Jordan Peele’s award winning “Get Out.” Peter Debruge of “Variety” said that the film blends \"race-savvy satire with horror to especially potent effect. This bombshell social critique from first-time director Jordan Peele proves positively fearless — which is not at all the same thing as scareless.\" It is part “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner”and part “Stepford Wives,” with Hitchcock-like suspense. That Peele was able to combine those disparate elements with humor is what makes this an extraordinary film and is why he won the Academy Award for Best Screenplay.
Please be aware that “Get Out” is rated R for some vulgar language and violence. We take the risk of showing it because Peele’s point is that racism is violent. We feel that it fits in well with our past screenings of “13th” and “I Am Not Your Negro.” If you are up for the challenge of seeing this important film.
Please join us:
Fellowship Hall at CVUMC, 2700 Montrose Ave., Montrose. Doors open at 7, film at 7:30.
Refreshments will be served.
