A young African-American visits his white girlfriend's parents for the weekend, where his simmering uneasiness about their reception of him eventually reaches a boiling point.
Jordan Peele said in an interview that Allison Williams reminded him of "someone you knew and had a crush on when you met her at summer camp", and he thought this was a great quality for the kind of character Rose Armitage really is.
The first night at Rose's parents' house, Chris moves the stuffed lion facing outward. When he wakes up, the lion is looking towards the bed again. Later in the day, during the party, the lion is facing away from the bed again.
