East Coast Premiere

Narrative Feature | USA | 2023 | English | 117 minutes

Tony and Emmy Award® winner Jeffrey Wright stars in this biting comedy as Thelonius “Monk” Ellison, an under-appreciated author fed up with the state of Black literature in America. When he uses a pen name to write an outlandish “Black” book of his own, he is propelled into the hypocritical madness he claims to disdain. Acclaimed writer Cord Jefferson (''Watchmen,'' ''Succession'') makes his feature directorial debut with this warm, whip-smart satire featuring an all-star cast, including Tracee Ellis Ross, Issa Rae, Leslie Uggams, and Sterling K. Brown. Based on Percival Everett’s award-winning novel ''Erasure,'' AMERICAN FICTION playfully grapples with our culture’s obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes. An Orion Pictures release. Winner of the Toronto Film Festival People's Choice Award.
