Thelonious “Monk” Ellison’s writing career has stalled because his work isn’t deemed “Black enough.” Monk, a writer and English professor, writes a satirical novel under a pseudonym, aiming to expose the publishing world’s hypocrisies. The book’s immediate success forces him to get deeper enmeshed in his assumed identity and challenges his closely-held worldviews.

Nominated for 5 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor – Jeffrey Wright, Best Supporting Actor – Sterling K. Brown, and Best Adapted Screenplay.

“A triumphant satire about race, exploitation, family and identity that’s as rich and captivating as [Wright’s] tour-de-force.” – The Daily Beast
