Get Out lands perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes
Jordan Peele’s racially charged horror movie Get Out is keeping it 100.
The film, which marks Peele’s feature writing and directing debut, currently boasts a “100 percent Fresh” rating on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, meaning it has yet to receive a single negative appraisal. At the time of writing, the site counts 93 positive reviews.
Opening Friday, Get Out stars Daniel Kaluuya as a young black photographer who heads upstate with his white girlfriend (Allison Williams) to meet her wealthy parents but encounters increasingly strange behavior. Critics are hailing the film as trenchant, entertaining, and frightening.
Although its perfect score could still be marred by one or more dissenting reviews, Get Out is in rare company at the moment. Only one other movie this year has been rated 100 percent fresh, the HBO documentary Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Last year’s 100 club comprised four films: Things to Come (L’avenir), Tower, Only Yesterday, and O.J.: Made in America.
