Oscars®-nominated satire with Jeffrey Wright (The Batman, Westworld).

To sell more books, a frustrated novelist uses a stereotyped alter ego that exposes publishing-industry racism.

Adapted from Percival Everett’s novel Erasure, Cord Jefferson’s directorial debut is a wildly entertaining send-up of our hunger for so-called authenticity. American Fiction is a timely reflection on the fictions we tell ourselves about race, progress, and community.

Nominated for five Oscars®.

“In making that message simultaneously palatable and unmistakable, Jefferson has made his own remarkable debut one that’s less heartbreaking and visceral than heartwarming and vibrant.” Ann Hornaday, Washington Post.

2023. USA. Director: Cord Jefferson. Cast: Jeffrey Wright, Tracee Ellis Ross, John Ortiz. Duration: 1hr57mins. Cert: 15.
