Us, Jordan Peele’s latest offering, is a thriller and quite a good one at that. We give you 5 reasons why you should watch this one.
The story of the film is pretty neat. Adelaide (Lupita Nyong’o) had a childhood incident which immensely affected her. We can’t really tell you what that incident was because it might effect your experience. Now, many years, marriage and two kids later, her past is back to haunt her and her family.
The performances are superb. Lupita Nyong’o is brilliant. Winston Duke, who plays Adelaide’s husband, is good. The kids – Shahadi Wright Joseph & Evan Alex are wonderful.
The film is a thriller but it has some great humour too. And honestly, it was much needed since the theme of the film was pretty glum.
Script & Storytelling
The script and storytelling are top-notch. You are continuously invested in the proceedings and want to know what’s going to happen. However, it does get a bit predictable at times.
While the film has quite a few twists, the last twist is definitely going to boggle your mind and make you pull your hair out. So well done.
