Bring something to sit on and whatever you need to stay warm and dry
Oscar® winner Jordan Peele disrupted and redefined modern horror with Get Out (that we screened at the Lido in 2018) and then Us. Now, he reimagines the summer movie with a new pop nightmare: the expansive horror epic, Nope.
Following their father’s shocking death, Hollywood animal wrangler OJ (Daniel Kaluuya) and his sister Emerald (Keke Palmer) begin observing unexplained phenomena on their vast Southern California ranch that leads them down an obsessive rabbit hole as they plot attempts to capture the mystery on camera. Along with a former child star turned family theme park ringmaster (Steven Yeun) who neighbours the siblings, the pair’s efforts to chase the spectacle soon bring terrifying consequences and unimaginable horror.
The result is a complex social thriller that unpacks the seeds of violence, risk and opportunism that are inseparable from the romanticised history of the American West…and from show business itself.
FREE MAKES IT INCLUSIVE, DONATIONS MAKE IT HAPPEN
