SORRY TO BOTHER YOU (15)
SATIRE about workplace culture, black exploitation and rampant capitalism. Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield, pictured) – aka Cash – lands a job as a telemarketer. Cash’s tentative first efforts to engage customers are dispiriting failures until an experienced co-worker (Danny Glover) imparts sage words. “You want to make some money here, read the script with your white voice,” he whispers. Sure enough, when Cash (now voiced by David Cross) erases all traces of Oakland from his patter, he secures his first sale... then another. In record time, he is courting the attention of CEO Steve Lift (Armie Hammer).
