Expect the unexpected in Boots Riley’s directorial debut, Sorry to Bother You — an outrageously surreal look at capitalism, corporate greed, and fractured workplace dynamics. In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, California, struggling telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, which propels him into a macabre universe.

Common Sense Says
Very mature satire is unique, impossible to dismiss.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Sorry to Bother You is a very mature satirical comedy with unreal elements. Written and directed by Oakland rapper Boots Riley, it includes disturbing, monstrous imagery, as well as fantasy-type violence and a bloody head wound. An art show involves audience members throwing bags of sheep's blood, bullet casings, and cell phones at a woman on stage (she's in charge). There's graphic nudity (both male and female) and explicit sexual situations. Language is extremely strong and pervasive, with almost constant use of "f--k," "s--t," the "N" word, and more. Characters drink socially (sometimes too much), as well as smoke pot and use cocaine; background characters smoke. It's not perfect, but it's rebellious, funny, and full of ideas.
