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.
Winner of the Toronto International Film Festival’s Audience Award, American Fiction marks an auspicious and brilliantly satirical first feature from Jefferson, the acclaimed journalist and writer of breakout TV shows The Good Place, Watchmen, and Succession.
