Jordan Peele challenges classism in "Us" using the Wilson Family as an allegory for American identity.
Taking place in an alternative universe where an unknown US government agency created twisted doppelgangers, known as Tethers, of people that live underground. Somewhere along the way, this project is abandoned and the Tethers go through life doing everything their counterparts do but in a twisted fashion.
These worlds collide when Adelaide Wilson (Lupita Nyong'o) accidentally comes in contact with her Tether when she is young. And later in life, the Tethers terrorise her whole family.
If you’re going into "Us" expecting to watch "Get Out" 2.0 but with a new theme, it is anything but that. Peele’s second directorial film shows that he isn’t a one trick pony as "Us" has a non-linear form of storytelling, a female main protagonist and the metaphorical aspect of the film can be taking in a bevvy of different avenues.
