" Us "

AMC Hoffman Center 22

Writer/director Jordan Peele's highly anticipated follow-up to his smash hit Get Out. “Us” is a terrorizing thriller that follows a family to their beach house expecting to unwind with friends. But as night descends, their serenity turns to chaos when some shocking visitors arrive "uninvited.” A fight for survival and a new nightmare begins. The song and trailer are creepy - check it out. Rated ‘R’ so you know it’s good. Some of you may have to bring one of your parents :) the film looks like a cross between Strangers and Breaking In. 95% rating Rotten Tomatoes! Must see film of the year. Eats/convo after the film next door at San Antonio Bar & Grill for those interesting in staying. 8pm showtime: "Us"

The few current reviewers seem to have a certain bias https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8092888/reviews?ref_=ttexrv_sa_3 ARTICLE: https://slate.com/human-interest/2013/01/steubenville-ohio-rape-anonymous-gets-involved-and-the-case-gets-even-more-complicated.html “Documentaries don’t usually HORRIFY the oxygen out of me, but I found myself gulping for air more than once during ROLL RED ROLL. ” – Lena Wilson, Slate At a pre-season football party in small-town Steubenville, Ohio, a heinous crime took place: the assault of a teenage girl by members of the beloved high school football team. What transpired would garner national attention and result in the sentencing of two key offenders. But it was the disturbing social media evidence uncovered online by crime blogger, Alex Goddard, that provoked the most powerful questions about the case, and about the collusion of teen bystanders, teachers, parents and coaches to protect the assailants and discredit the victim. As it painstakingly reconstructs the night of the crime and its aftermath, ROLL RED ROLL uncovers the engrained rape culture at the heart of the incident, acting as a cautionary tale about what can happen when teenage social media bullying runs rampant and adults look the other way. The film unflinchingly asks: “Why didn’t anyone stop it?” Special Student Pricing: $5 Standard ticket pricing for all other tickets. This film is presented in partnership with Museum of Contemporary American Teenagers (MoCAT) as a part of their series “Coming of Age in Toxicity.” For more information on MoCAT, visit mocatpopup.org Learn More: https://www.theavalon.org/films/roll-red-roll/
