Us
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, from Monkeypaw Productions, stars Oscar® winner Lupita Nyongo as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Black Panthers Winston Duke), and their two children (Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex) for an idyllic summer getaway.

Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family.

After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), 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.

"It captures the transformative, radical power of a political conscience, of an idea long held in secret, as it ripens and develops over decades worth of time. Us is nothing short of a colossal achievement." - Richard Brody, New Yorker

"The Tethered themselves tell the Wilsons Were Americans, making the central metaphor as blunt as possible. But whether director Jordan Peele intended this or not, his story is not just one of America, but how Americas history, its systems, its government, corrupts the denizens of even other nations, underground or otherwise." - Medium

" Us is not as beloved as Get Out  at least for now  partly because the expectations for Peeles sophomore effort were so high, but also because Get Out was an easier film to dissect. Us offers no easy answers, but indicts us all." New York Times

"Peele unleashes a bevy of conceptual ideas about race, class, and American-ness that are only difficult to grasp if the viewer is not really looking. Us is supremely confident filmmaking, a thrill ride shot through with existential urgency." - Reverse Shot

"In Us, that not-so-distant past is prologue, and the echoing image of paper dolls, hand in hand, becomes a major motif and a potent symbol of spatial, generational, and national trauma." - Film Comment

"Alfred Hitchcock is the presiding artistic influence. When you analyze Us visually, you see mirroring across vertical and horizontal axes, manipulations of depth and surface, parallels and forks, layers and scrims and slices." - The Nation
