American Fiction is Cord Jefferson's hilarious directorial debut, which 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.

Adapted from Percival Everett’s novel “Erasure,” and featuring stellar supporting turns from Issa Rae, Erika Alexander and a string of cheeky cameos, American Fiction is a timely reflection on the fictions we tell ourselves about race, progress, and community.

"...a scathing satire, a family drama, and an absolute triumph." Rolling Stone

Academy Award winner for Best Adapted Screenplay.
