Sorry to Bother You

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, black telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe of “powercalling” that leads to material glory. But the upswing in Cassius’ career raises serious red flags with his girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson), a performance artist and minimum-wage striver who’s secretly part of a Banksy-style activist collective. As his friends and co-workers organize in protest of corporate oppression, Cassius falls under the spell of his company’s cocaine-snorting CEO Steve Lift (Armie Hammer), who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams. Also starring Danny Glover, Jermaine Fowler, Omari Hardwick, Terry Crews, Steven Yeun, Patton Oswalt, David Cross, Forest Whitaker, Lily James.

“Fearlessly ambitious, scathingly funny, and thoroughly original, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU loudly heralds the arrival of a fresh filmmaking talent in writer-director Boots Riley.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“It should throw the viewer for a loop, because it’s a reflection of the insane times we live in.” (Salon.com)

“SORRY TO BOTHER YOU, the feature debut of writer-director Boots Riley, and the no-contest wildest comedy of the season, will keep your mind busy for weeks.” (Globe and Mail)
