Let’s start with one of the more successful surprises — Jordan Peele’s “Get Out,” the film about a black man whose first meeting with his white girlfriend’s parents turns into a disturbing nightmare. After its theatrical release in February, everyone was talking about the movie and praising it for its social satire. The critically acclaimed film, which is impossible to categorize, has a 99 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and brought in $253 million at the worldwide box office, despite only having a production budget of $4.5 million. That sure silenced the myth that black films don’t travel.
