Like a wild amalgamation of Charlie Kaufmann, Jordan Peele and Jonathan Swift, musician Boots Riley brings surreal flair and dazzling originality to his debut film, Sorry To Bother You, a lampoon of societal mores and hyper-capitalist excess that doesn't slow down for a moment for you to catch your breath.

Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta, Get Out) leads us on this journey as Cassius Green, a down-on-his-luck guy looking for any job that can help lift him out of his situation. When he jumps on an opening at a telemarketing company, he quickly learns that he'll improve his sales by utilizing his "white voice," and proceeds to become a power caller. But what is he even selling? As Cassius continues his meteoric rise, he catches the eye of the company's obnoxious cocaine-snorting CEO, played by the normally charming Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name), and things quickly spiral towards an unimaginable—and unforgettable—end.

“Sorry to Bother You, the brash film debut from musician and activist Boots Riley, is the most of-the-moment movie on the landscape right now—it may end up being the most politically and culturally relevant movie of the year.”
