From the producers of GET OUT & BLACKkKLANSMAN comes a uncooked and riotous political comedy for divisive occasions.
A controversial White Home coverage turns member of the family towards member of the family in THE OATH, a savagely humorous darkish comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving within the age of political tribalism. When Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a high-strung 24-hour progressive information junkie, and his extra levelheaded spouse Kai (Tiffany Haddish) be taught that residents are being requested to signal a loyalty oath to the President, their response is disbelief, adopted by idealistic refusal. However because the Thanksgiving deadline to signal approaches, the mix of sparring relations, Chris’s personal agitation and the sudden arrival of two authorities brokers (John Cho and Billy Magnussen) sends an already tense vacation dinner gathering utterly off the rails. As well timed as it’s outrageous, THE OATH is a gleefully depraved reinvention of the normal vacation comedy for our divisive political occasions.
