Us: Plot Synopsis
Us follows the story of Adelaide Wilson, who, along with the rest of her family return to her childhood beach home for a vacation. Adelaide is haunted by nightmares from her youth and she gets increasingly worried that something bad is about to happen to her family. These fears quickly become a reality when four Doppelgangers descend upon her home one night and throughout the film, they do their best to terrorise the family whilst the family try and get to the bottom of the mystery of who they are.
Adelaide’s Doppelganger is the leader and she uses the rest of the Tethered to separate the family and spread them out which involves several different scenarios and eventually leads to them discovering that everyone has a shadow version of themselves. These shadow people, know as the tethered, live underground, eat rabbits and mirror the movements of those on the surface.
It’s stated in the film that The Tethered may be part of a government experiment and whilst it’s not detailed this ties into the overall message of the film which I’ll go into later. They have been put in place to attempt to reverse the control that those who live above have over them and instead allow for the tethered to control the people on the surface.
We learn that The Tethered have come to kill their opposites and unite and to show themselves to the world.
Us: Ending Explained
Throughout the film, we learn of Adelaide’s childhood, including a time when she was at a carnival with her parents and after wandering into a hall of mirrors, she witnesses a mirror version of herself that is a completely different person. This opens the movie but we learn a lot more of this backstory as the film goes on. It turns out that the beach house is in the same location that the carnival was that she visited as a child and the trauma that she experienced there has come back in full force.
Though the family manages to kill some of The Tethered, upon returning to the beach the next day they see many of them holding hands as a symbol of their union and show that this is Us. Adelaide’s doppelganger manages to kidnap Adelaide’s son and descends into the subsurface world. Adelaide follows her through the hall of mirrors from her childhood in which there was a doorway and we learn the truth behind the movie.
It turns out that Adelaide’s doppelganger planned the entire thing and has been waiting for 30 years to spring her trap. It appears that Adelaide manages to kill her Doppelganger and rescue her son, however, we learn that when Adelaide originally met her Doppelganger in the hall of mirrors, they actually switched places.
This is why Adelaide is the only member of The Tethered that is able to speak and this explains her quest for revenge. The Doppelganger upon reaching the surface as a child was able to adjust over time to normal life but it still has traumatic memories of this part of its life. The real Adelaide has been the one trapped underground and this drive to need to return to the surface is why she began attempting to command the army of Doppelgangers.
The twist feels like it was ripped straight out of the Goosebumps book: Let’s get invisible and those who remember that episode will of course see a lot of similarities here.
The Tethered Explained
Jordan Peele when speaking frankly about the creatures stated the following:
“We’re our own worst enemy, and that idea created this monster, The Tethered. I wanted to forge this new mythology that explored
