Cinema | American Fiction (15)

Dir: Cord Jefferson 2023 | 117 mins

Nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Actor (Jeffrey Wright), Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Jeffrey Wright gives a terrific performance in this smart, incisive satire of the literary world based on Percival Everett’s acclaimed novel Erasure.

Thelonius Ellison, or ‘Monk’ (Wright) is a frustrated novelist who's fed up with a literary establishment that profits from Black stories built on tired and offensive tropes.

Angry and disillusioned, forced back home to cohabit with his troubled family, he uses a pseudonym to write and publish a similarly exploitative book of his own that propels him to fame and the heart of the hypocrisy he claims to disdain.

'Jeffrey Wright and Sterling K Brown are marvellous in Cord Jefferson’s touching, funny dramedy – which has been nominated for five Oscars' Independent
