Actor Ike Barinholtz talks moving forward with hope, strength and unity during America’s current divide with the release of ‘The Oath’

When Chris, a high-strung news junkie, and his more levelheaded wife learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the president, their reaction is disbelief. As the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris’ own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents sends an already tense holiday gathering completely off the rails.


The Oath is the perfect movie for our current political climate. If those words made in any way disencouraged you to not want to see the movie, then we’re probably being unclear. See. This. Movie. See it before you’re seated around the Thanksgiving dinner table surrounded by family members with different political beliefs.

The movie stars Tiffany Haddish (you’d have to be in a coma to not know her work) and Ike Barinholtz (Mad TV, Suicide Squad, Eastbound & Down), who debuts as a triple threat writing, directing and producing the film. In this interview we talk about the movie in a totally spoiler-free way.
