Monk (Jeffrey Wright), a frustrated novelist, is 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.

Cord Jefferson’s hilarious directorial debut, American Fiction confronts our culture’s obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes.
