They were also joined by writer and director Jordan Peele, who spoke out about the film during the Q&A session.

“I have a very clear commentary with this film. This movie is about this country. When I decided to write this movie, I was stricken with this movie at a time when we fear the ‘other’…the mysterious invader. We are all about pointing finger…maybe the evil is us,” Jordan said.

Other attendees included cast members Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex and Tim Heidecker.

Us hits theaters on March 21st.

FYI: Elisabeth is wearing a Dior dress, Laer Brand jacket, Christian Louboutin shoes, Melinda Maria earrings and carrying an Edie Parker clutch.

Tracy’s mother is the indomitable Edna, and she eventually encourages Tracy on her campaign to integrate the all-white “Corny Collins Show.”
