Synopsis

Suburbicon is a 1950s picture-perfect American town, purposely built to attract only the most dutiful citizens looking to bring up their families in the safest environment. All is comically picket-fenced until the Meyers, the suburb’s first African-American family, move in, triggering an onslaught of racial hatred from the residents. Meanwhile, as the community angrily petition for the Meyers' removal, they are oblivious to a terrible attack on the white Gardner family next-door. In the following days, as the Gardners try to keep up appearances and get back to normal, something just doesn’t feel right to their son Nicky, particularly when his father and aunt fail to identify the perpetrators of the attack in a line-up. As tension around the Meyers' house rises, events build to an absurdly explosive and violent head in this curious and dark comedy.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
