SORRY TO BOTHER YOU
SORRY TO BOTHER YOU tells the story of Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield, ATLANTA, GET OUT), a 30-something telemarketer with self-esteem issues who discovers a magical selling power hidden within himself. Suddenly, he's rising up the ranks to the elite team of his company, which sells heinous products and services. The upswing in Cassius' career raises red flags with his brilliant girlfriend, Detroit (Tessa Thompson, CREED, DEAR WHITE PEOPLE), a sign-twirling gallery artist. But the unimaginable hits the fan when Cassius meets the company's cocaine-snorting, orgy-hosting, obnoxious and relentless CEO, Steve Lift (Armie Hammer, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME, THE SOCIAL NETWORK). SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is unlike anything you have ever seen. It is a searing social satire about greed, racial dynamics and capitalism in a universe not unlike our own. Prepare yourself for something outrageous and totally original. With Terry Crews, Forest Whitaker, Omari Hardwick and Danny Glover. DIR/SCR Boots Riley; PROD Nina Yang Bongiovi, Jonathan Duffy, Charles D. King, George Rush, Forest Whitaker, Kelly Williams. U.S., 2018, color, 105 min. RATED R
