Get Out, the directorial debut of comedian Jordan Peele, has been the talk of the entertainment world since its explosive opening. The politically charged, meticulously crafted psychological thriller has brought in over $150 million and garnered widespread critical acclaim from movie buffs and film critics alike.

The circumstances of this film and its story are singularly extraordinary; don’t miss gaining insight into a film music success story.
