Hull Independent Cinema presents...
Dir Cord Jefferson | 2023 | USA | 117 min | 15 | English
Monk is a novelist, constantly frustrated that ‘Black’ entertainment pandering to offensive tropes is more successful than his own more nuanced work. To prove a point he adopts a pseudonym to write a fake book full of exaggerated stereotypes, satirising the tastes of the white literary establishment. He expects it to fail, but it becomes a massive hit, leading to a publishing and film deal, and Monk is forced to choose between success and his principles. A biting and important satire on the prejudices faced by people of colour in arts and the media.
Featuring Jeffrey Wright, Tracee Ellis Ross, Issa Rae

"A triumphant satire about race, exploitation, family and identity that’s as rich and captivating as [Wright's] tour-de-force." Nick Schager, The Daily Beast
"t’s an extremely funny movie that lands some sharp blows, and a stellar feature debut from seasoned TV writer Cord Jefferson." Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
"Jeffrey Wright gives great curmudgeon in writer/director Cord Jefferson’s feature debut." ★★★ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
