Sorry to Bother You
Cassius Green, a 30-something black telemarketer with self-esteem issues, discovers a magical selling power living inside of him. Suddenly he’s rising up the ranks to the elite team of his company. The upswing in Cassius’s career raises serious red flags with his brilliant girlfriend, a sign-twirling gallery artist who is secretly a part of a Banksy-style collective called Left Eye. But the unimaginable hits the fan when Cassius meets the company’s cocaine-snorting, orgy-hosting, obnoxious, and relentlessly optimistic CEO, Steve Lift. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, hip-hop artist Boots Riley’s directorial feature debut Sorry to Bother You gives a refreshingly visionary social critique aimed at the late-capitalist world of today. The stellar cast features names such as Tessa Thompson, Armie Hammer, Danny Glover and Lakeith Stanfield.
