Advance Screening: Sorry to Bother You with director Boots Riley

Fri, 23 Mar 2018 13:57:00 EST

Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield), a 30-something telemarketer with self-esteem issues, discovers a magical selling power living inside of him. Suddenly he's rising up the ranks to the elite team of his company, which sells heinous products and services. The upswing in Cassius's career raises serious red flags with his brilliant girlfriend, Detroit (Tessa Thompson), a sign-twirling gallery artist who is secretly a part of a Banksy-style collective called Left Eye. But the unimaginable hits the fan when Cassius meets the company's cocaine-snorting, orgy-hosting, obnoxious, and relentlessly optimistic CEO, Steve Lift (Armie Hammer).Bursting with wit and originality, writer/director Boots Riley pulls no punches in this immensely intelligent comedy about overcoming your perception of your own powers of persuasion. With pitch-perfect performances by a stellar cast, a super funky soundtrack (which Riley contributes to), plus a score by Tune-Yards, Sorry to Bother You is a sparkling debut feature that surfs a macabre universe with a disturbing likeness to our own.Q&A with Boots Riley to follow moderated by filmmaker and MassArt professor Chico Colvard.This event is only open to the Emerson community. Tickets will be available at the box office on the day of show. Doors will open at 6:30 pm.
