About ‘American Fiction’:

This compelling film challenges our society’s fixation on reducing individuals to stereotypes.

Starring Jeffrey Wright as Monk, a frustrated novelist, the story delves into Monk’s discontent with the establishment profiting from “Black” entertainment built on tired and offensive tropes.

In an attempt to prove his point, Monk uses a pen name to craft an audacious “Black” book, thrusting himself into the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.

Adapted from Percival Everett‘s novel, “Erasure.”
