American Fiction

Sunday 17 March 2024


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.

‘American Fiction is brimming with snappy, incisive banter and gags that a masterful ensemble cast led by Jeffrey Wright, Sterling K Brown and Tracee Ellis Ross take full advantage of’ – The Guardian ★★★★☆

‘Both sweet-natured and scathing’ – The Washington Post ★★★★☆
