Premiering at TIFF and rated a resounding 94% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, Cord Jefferson’s directorial feature debut is “an extremely funny movie that lands some sharp blows, and a stellar feature debut” (Vox). Jeffrey Wright (THE FRENCH DISPATCH) 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.
