After sending shockwaves across the film industry and setting a new standard for provocative, socially-conscious horror films with his directorial debut, Get Out, Academy Award winner Jordan Peele returns with Us.
Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) plays Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Winston Duke, Black Panther), and their two children for a summer getaway.
Haunted by a mysterious trauma from her past, something made worse by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia rise as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to happen to her family.
After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (inc. Elisabeth Moss), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway…
Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
