Cord Jefferson’s hilarious debut film stars Jeffrey Wright as Monk – a frustrated novelist who decides to write an outlandish “Black” book that lampoons modern culture’s obsession with black stereotypes.

When the book becomes a runaway success, Monk finds himself having to go along with the charade including creating a persona of ex-con writer “Stagg R. Leigh” which only further enamours him to the white publishing bosses!

Now nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Lead Actor.
