Written and directed by Edson Oda, Nine Days is a metaphysical film that follows a lonely man named Will, played by Winston Duke (Black Panther, Us), who is tasked with interviewing human souls and deciding which one will be given a chance to live. One soul in particular, Emma (Zazie Beetz), is an independent thinker who resists the tasks Will assigns and forces him to examine his own existence.
Jordan Peele follows up his trailblazing, Oscar-winning debut Get Out with Us, a thriller that flips the script on Peele’s trademark storytelling. This time, the social commentary exists behind a creepy and tense home invasion flick.
By: Jessica Goddard Jordan Peele’s sophomore effort Us is gripping and suspenseful at first, but loses steam as the story’s loose ends become hard to ignore.
