When the broke Cassius Green gets a job at the telemarketing company RegalView, he has high hopes for getting ahead. He quickly learns that his afroamerican voice doesn't appeal to his target group. When an older colleague teaches him to use his «white accent» to sell more, and when he advances to «power seller» his life changes completely.
Cassius is played by Lakeith Stanfield, who got his breakthrough as the eccentric Darius in the TV series "Atlanta", and the other roles are filled with solid names such as Tessa Thompson, Terry Crews, Danny Glover and Armie Hammer. With his debut feature has the multiartist Boots Riley made a sharp, energetic and surrealistic satire about race and power in today's USA. SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is simply one of this year's smartest and funniest political films.
NB! SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is a NEW film on our programme, and will be screened on Wednesday 03 October at 14:30 at Røkeriet USF.
Boots Riley (USA, 1971) SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is Riley's debut feature.
