Get on up for Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya

It’s time to take note of the star of 2017’s most talked-about movie…

Get Out is the horror hit about a young African American’s disastrous trip to meet his girlfriend’s folks. It’s a terrifying exploration of racial prejudice that will have you jumping out of your own skin. And it has Oscar splashed all over it

It’s certainly a change of pace for director Jordan Peele, who makes his directorial debut. It’s the very same Peele who, along with his sketch partner Keegan-Michael Key, produced and starred in Keanu (a film about a drug lord’s lost kitten – the kitten voiced by Keanu Reeves). 

Get Out has also opened up a whole new world of opportunity for the film’s star, Daniel Kaluuya. Until Get Out, he was ticking every box of British TV – he’s appeared in Doctor Who and Silent Witness; he’s been that guy from Skins; he’s been the darling of the BBC’s quirky late-night dramas (think Shoot The Messenger and The Fades). He’s even part of the esteemed Black Mirror alumni, starring in an episode from the very first series, “Fifteen Million Merits”. Oh and did we mention he just picked up a Rising Star nomination at this year's BAFTAs?

Joining Kaluuya is Allison Williams (Girls), Catherine Keener (Being John Malkovich), Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta) and Bradley Whitford (The West Wing).

 

With a 99 per cent approval rating from the critics on Rotten Tomatoes, and box office takings of $254.3 million on a budget of just $4.5 million (it’s the highest-grossing film of all time by a black director), the numbers speak for themselves. If you haven’t seen it, you’ve got to. If you have, you’ll know you want to see it again. Even if it does make you flinch every time you now hear a spoon clinking in a teacup.

 

And a big part of the reason the film is so superb is British actor Kaluuya’s stunning performance. Here are his career highlights to date…
