Nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Jeffery Wright), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Cord Jefferson)!

Cord Jefferson’s hilarious directorial debut confronts our culture’s obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes. Jeffrey Wright stars as Thelonious ‘Monk’ Ellison, a frustrated novelist who’s fed up with the establishment profiting from ‘Black’ entertainment that relies on tired and offensive stereotypes. To prove his point, Monk uses a pen name to write his own outlandish ‘Black’ book that propels him into the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.
