Watch the new trailer for the BAFTA-nominated satire American Fiction. Exclusively in cinemas from 2 February.
Monk is a novelist, frustrated with how the establishment profits from “Black” entertainment based on tired and offensive tropes. To prove his point, Monk writes his own outlandish “Black” book under a pen name, propelling him into the hypocrisy and madness he claims to disdain.
Tony® and Emmy® Award-winner Jeffrey Wright leads the cast of this wickedly bold and smart comedy about the commodification of marginalised voices with his portrayal of Thelonious “Monk” Ellison, a respected author and professor of English literature at a predominately white institution, who experiences professional and personal events that force him to reexamine the terms of his integrity, ideals, and artistic existence.
A fearless, funny, and provocative tale, that shines a thoughtful and thought-provoking light on the concept and construct of race, identity, and family that aims to unify.
