In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe of “power-calling” 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 freewheeling CEO Steve Lift (Armie Hammer), who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams.
Blending comedy, fantasy and social commentary, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is directed by Boots Riley from his original screenplay.
Duration: 111 mins
Universal Pictures is releasing the film on 29 November 2018.
