Member Exclusive: Sorry to Bother You
A breathlessly inventive satire about a man climbing the corporate ladder. Just don’t look down…
Dir Boots Riley
With Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Armie Hammer, Jermaine Fowler
A Universal Pictures release
Mild-mannered call-centre employee Cassius (Stanfield) discovers he has a talent to adopt a ‘white voice’ – an ability which promptly lets him climb the corporate ladder. But as he draws closer to disturbed entrepreneur Steve (Hammer), there might be more at stake than just his career, friendships with his co-workers and his relationship with his activist girlfriend Detroit (Thompson). In his dark satirical debut, Boots Riley firmly establishes himself as a powerful new voice in contemporary cinema.
Gaylene Gould, Head of Cinema and Events
