Sorry to Bother You (15)

Lakeith Stanfield stars in Boots Riley’s absurdist fable of corporate manipulation and greed.

Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success in the dull world of telemarketing. But as his career begins to take off, his activist girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson) and co-workers protest corporate oppression.

First time writer-director Boots Riley combines sci-fi fantasy with politics and humour for an insane ride that is both unhinged and completely original. This trippy social satire is both hilarious and an accessible commentary on class and race, making it one of the most unique offers that indie cinema has produced in a long time.
