Jeffrey Wright along with co-stars Tracee Ellis Ross, John Ortiz, Erika Alexander, Adam Brody, Sterling K. Brown, and writer-director-producer Cord Jefferson attend the Los Angeles Premiere of AMERICAN FICTION on Tuesday, December 5 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater.
About American Fiction:
AMERICAN FICTION is Cord Jefferson’s hilarious directorial debut, which confronts our culture’s obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes. Jeffrey Wright stars as Monk, a frustrated novelist who’s fed up with the establishment profiting from “Black” entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes. To prove his point, Monk uses a pen name to write an outlandish “Black” book of his own, a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain.
