Tyrel, a movie from 2018, directed by Sebastián Silva stars Jason Mitchell, Christopher Abbott, and Ann Dowd. The movie follows Tyler (Jason Mitchell), who goes on a weekend trip with a group of friends to a remote cabin in upstate New York. Tyler is the only black member of the group, and as the weekend progresses, he begins to feel increasingly isolated and uncomfortable.

The movie starts with Tyler on a bus, heading for the cabin. He arrives and meets Johnny (Christopher Abbott), the friend who invited him, and the rest of the group. Johnny’s friend, Pete (Caleb Landry Jones), is immediately aggressive towards Tyler, but no one else seems to notice.

As the weekend goes on, Tyler becomes increasingly uncomfortable. He starts having trouble sleeping and begins to feel like an outsider in the group. The other members of the group seem to be bonding over shared experiences and references that Tyler doesn't understand, and he starts to feel like he doesn't belong.

Tyler tries to bond with the other guys, but they mostly ignore him or make fun of him. He tries to talk to them about music and sports, but they don't seem interested. Johnny, who seems to be Tyler's closest friend in the group, is preoccupied with his own problems and doesn't seem to be able to empathize with Tyler's discomfort.

The tension between Tyler and the other guys comes to a head when they all decide to go on a drinking bender. Tyler tries to keep up with the others, but he quickly gets drunk and starts to feel sick. The other guys continue to drink and party, and Tyler starts to feel like he needs to leave.

Over the course of the weekend, Tyler confronts issues of race and identity. He feels like he is constantly being judged and excluded because of his race, and he starts to question whether he even really knows himself.

Throughout the movie, Jason Mitchell gives a nuanced performance as Tyler. He portrays the character's discomfort and confusion in a way that feels genuine and raw. Christopher Abbott also delivers a strong performance as Johnny, capturing the character's own struggles and inability to empathize with Tyler.

The movie's themes of race and identity are explored in a way that feels honest and nuanced. The film doesn't offer easy answers or solutions, but rather invites the viewer to engage with the questions that it raises.

Overall, Tyrel is a thought-provoking and powerful film that delivers a powerful message about identity, race, and the human experience. Sebastián Silva's direction is strong, and the performances from the cast are excellent. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a movie that will challenge them and make them think.

Tyrel is a 2018 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 26 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.5 and a MetaScore of 71.
