A breathlessly inventive satire about a man climbing the corporate ladder. Just don’t look down…

Dates and Times: Fri 28 Dec 2018 - Thu 10 Jan 2019, various times.

Writer-director Boots Riley’s breathlessly inventive satire is bursting with wit and panache. 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. We can only hope the Trump era heralds more socialist comedy-horrors like this.
