Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) takes a job as a telemarketer in order to pay for the garage apartment he shares with his girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson). It’s a thankless, low-paying job — until he discovers his “white voice,” a magical ability to sound white that skyrockets him up the ranks of his company and into the influence of hard-driving CEO Steve Lift (Armie Hammer). It’s a darkly-hilarious look at race, wage slavery, and culture in America today, and a fantastic first effort from writer/director Boots Riley. Currently Sorry to Bother You is rated 94% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.
Sorry to Bother You opens Tuesday, August 14, and plays Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday at 7:30.
