Monk is a frustrated novelist who is fed up with the establishment that profits from Black entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes. To prove his point, he 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.

Critics

“This pitch-perfect combination of dry, observant satire and relatable family drama elements is one of the most accessible end-of-the-year awards contenders. ”

Newman times-Herald

“American Fiction is a funny, heartwarming tale that holds a mirror up to its viewers – a well deserved best picture contender.”

Alexandra Jones, London Evening Standard

“A funny, touching portrait of a man attempting to fine-tune his relationship with the world.”
