This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

An absurdist and unabashedly radical comedy about solidarity, union-busting, code-switching, and the workings of modern global capitalism. A young, black telemarketer named Cassius (Lakeith Stanfield) struggles with personal ethics as he rises through the ranks of the shady company he works for, while his friends unionize and go on strike. Sorry to Bother You is an incredible debut feature from writer-director Boots Riley. Best known as the frontman of socialist hip hop group The Coup, Riley draws on his own experiences of telemarketing work as well as his extensive background in community organising to create a truly original and darkly hilarious film.
