Tyrel

Socially observant party cringe comedy from Sebastián Silva (Nasty Baby) about a man who joins his pal’s getaway weekend only to realise he’s the only black person there. Stars Straight Outta Compton's Jason Mitchell and Michael Cera.

“To avoid spending time with his girlfriend’s family, Tyler (Mitchell) decides to join a boys’ weekend with his friend Johnny (Christopher Abbott, Girls). When they arrive at the remote cabin, Tyler realises that he will be the only black man there, and that it is going to be a wild weekend. As an indication of the racial stereotyping he is to encounter, Tyler is initially called Tyrel, and as more guests arrive, the levels of awkwardness increase.” (Sydney Film Festival)

An unsettling literalization of black discomfort in a nation ruled by whites.
