As a new teaser trailer from Roadside Attractions shows, Barinholtz's Chris and his wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish) arrive for the holiday with his family, and things quickly spiral out of control as Chris goes to war over the controversial oath and what it says about America. The movie takes place around the Thanksgiving holiday and watches a family struggle to keep their opposing political views in check to survive the holiday in one piece.
From the producers of Get Out and BlacKkKlansman, The Oath stars Barinholtz and Haddish as a progressive couple - he's high-strung, she's more level-headed - who are appalled at the latest insult from the Oval Office: All Americans are being asked to sign a loyalty oath by the day after Thanksgiving.
The Oath is described as a savagely amusing dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism. Bring it on. The cast includes Billy Magnussen, John Cho, Meredith Hagner, Carrie Brownstein, Nora Dunn, Jon Barinholtz, Chris Ellis, and Priah Ferguson. "As timely as it is outrageous, THE OATH is a gleefully wicked reinvention of the traditional holiday comedy for our divisive political times". In a new trailer for The Oath, it appears that the government is set to pass a new law of patriotism that forces the public to swear their undying allegiance to the president. He is also serves as the film's producer along with Sean McKittrick, Ray Mansfield, David Stassen for 23/24 Pictures and Andrew Robinson. Barinholtz also stars in this as Chris, married to a woman named Kai, as played by Tiffany Haddish. The Oath is set to hit theaters on October 12. In the last two years, however, it has become a Sisyphean gauntlet of nightmares.
