Welcome, Katara Johnson. She's back to talk about the psychological thriller, Get Out!
Hi Auden Fans!!!!
I’m Katara Johnson and I am honored to be back with y’all to discuss the gems and undertones of Jordan Peele’s Get Out.
Another slavery element in this film was at that same get together Rose’s father announced he would host bingo game. That “game” was really a cover for an auction to see who would get Chris as a mind slave.
One gem that I did not pick up but my author friend Honey Essence, did was the glass ceiling undertone. It is widely known in this society that minorities can only go so far in their career. This effect is not only in all work fields but in life in general. When Chris finally realizes that Rose’s family is up to and he is telling her multiple times to get the keys to the car so they can leave Rose finally shows him that she has the keys and tells him “You know I can’t give you the keys right?” Saying she won’t let him leave but she is also saying she won’t let him get ahead either, this society is set up where in many places that one is depended upon Whites to get ahead in different areas. (Unless one chooses entrepreneurship and that has some obstacles.) So, Rose’s admission speaks volumes.
I have only named a few of the gems in this brilliant film by Jordan Peele. I also left out the interaction with the cop and Chris because that undertone was painstakingly obvious. If you haven’t seen this masterpiece, then what are you waiting for?
