Some people enjoy getting together with friends and family during Thanksgiving, while others loathe it because of all the family drama that can potentially be unleashed. This upcoming film, The Oath, focuses on the later as things get completely out of control when a family starts discussing a new White House policy at the dinner table. It's a fun dark comedy that is a commentary on the political climate that we currently find ourselves in the middle of.
The film stars Ike Barinholtz and Tiffany Haddish and it comes from the producers of Get Out and BlacKkKlansman. Here's what the film is about:
A controversial White House policy turns family member against family member in The Oath, a savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism. When Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more levelheaded wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish) learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President, their reaction is disbelief, followed by idealistic refusal. But as the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris’s own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents (John Cho and Billy Magnussen) sends an already tense holiday dinner gathering completely off the rails.
The Oath hits theaters this fall on October 12, 2018.
