AMERICAN FICTION stars Jeffrey Wright as Thelonious "Monk" Ellison, a novelist who is frustrated with the publishing industry for perpetrating tired and offensive visions of "Black" culture. As an act of rebellion, Monk dashes off an outlandish over-the-top book under a pseudonym, only to be shocked when it becomes a wild success. This very funny satire from director-writer Cord Jefferson is a sharp take on contemporary culture as well as a beautifully layered family story. Also with Tracee Ellis Ross, John Ortiz, Issa Rae, Sterling K. Brown, and Leslie Uggams.
