MGM has released the official trailer for Cord Jefferson’s brilliant directorial debut, American Fiction.
About ‘American Fiction’
The film confronts our culture’s obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes.
Jeffrey Wright stars as Monk, a frustrated novelist who’s fed up with the establishment profiting from “Black” entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes.
To prove his point, Monk uses a pen name to write an outlandish “Black” book of his own, a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.
The film is based on the novel, “Erasure,” by Percival Everett.
