Sorry To Bother You

Sorry To Bother You
Director:Boots Riley
Cert:15 Year: 2018 Length:112mins
Country:USA
In an alternate version of present-day California, mild-mannered call centre operator Cassius Green whizzes up the corporate ladder after he discovers his unique ability to adopt a 'white voice'. However the costs of success could be significantly more than alienation from his colleagues and his activist girlfriend.

Funny and surreal, Sorry to Bother you addresses serious themes of everyday racism and workforce oppression with a fresh wit and visual panache.

Critics

“It's broad, brash, in your face, inventively shot and, at times, laugh-out-loud funny yet it also becomes a mind-bogglingly extreme Swiftian satire”
