American Fiction

"A whip-smart, nimble comedy/satire." - RogerEbert.com

5 ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATIONS! BEST PICTURE, BEST ACTOR, BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR, BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY, BEST ORIGINAL SCORE

AMERICAN FICTION is Cord Jefferson’s hilarious directorial debut, which confronts our culture’s obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes. Jeffrey Wright stars as Monk, a frustrated novelist who’s fed up with the establishment profiting from “Black” entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes. To prove his point, Monk uses a pen name to write an outlandish “Black” book of his own, a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.

"It’s an extremely funny movie that lands some sharp blows, and a stellar feature debut from seasoned TV writer Cord Jefferson." - Vox
