|Description:||Please join the Shrewsbury Public Library for a screening of the film "Get Out" (2017, rated R), as part of the librarys Summer Scares programming (find more details here: https://shrewsburypubliclibrary.org/adult-services/summer-reading).
This critically-acclaimed film uses the lens of horror to explore themes of race in America: "Now that Chris and his girlfriend, Rose, have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries leads him to a truth that he never could have imagined" (rottentomatoes.com).
No registration required.
