The aftermath of a police killing of a black man, told through the eyes of the bystander who filmed the act, an African-American police officer and a high-school baseball phenom inspired to take a stand.

Tyler joins his friend on a trip to the Catskills for a weekend birthday party with several people he doesn't know. As soon as they get there, it's clear that (1) he's the only black guy, and (2) it's going to be a weekend of heavy drinking. Although Tyler is welcomed, he can't help but feel uneasy in "Whitesville." The combination of all the testosterone and alcohol starts to get out of hand, and Tyler's precarious situation starts to feel like a nightmare.Written by
Comparing this movie with "Get Out" reaches the pinnacle of superficiality. It's far more, far better than "Get Out" in the first place. It is the most vivid piece of art I can remember, in recent movie history, about toxic, gloomy manhood. it's, in fact, a thriller of small gestures, under the castle of the warm, "cozy" friendships. Great one. Great pace, without getting to explain every detail, which is what the lazy audience wants.
