Daniel Kaluuya seemed to reject remarks made by a reporter who said his new movie Get Out "ticked boxes."
The British actor was answering questions on the red carpet at the Academy Awards on Sunday and handled one question exceptionally well. A reporter, understood to be from Sky, remarked that the film’s themes “tick a lot of boxes in some ways.”
The 29-year old actor responded:
We’re not boxes, though. Articulating the black experience isn’t a box. We’re articulating our truth. We’re human beings.
Fair play to Daniel Kaluuya on this intelligent, impassioned response... #Oscars https://t.co/FzeMrIyG0l
