Winner, People's Choice Award, Toronto International Film Festival


""""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. Running time: 117 Minutes. Rated R for language throughout, some drug use, sexual references, and brief violence.
