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. Also starring Tracee Ellis Ross, Issa Rae, John Ortiz and Sterling K. Brown. Winner of the People’s Choice Award at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival! (Dir. by Cord Jefferson, 2023, USA, 117 mins., Rated R)
