Sorry to Bother You was praised for its concept, cast, and direction. How do you decide between stability and doing what’s right? How do you choose between principles and desires?
Cassius “Cash” Green (Lakeith Stanfield) has just begun a new job as a telemarketer. Living in his uncle’s garage with his girlfriend, he is struggling to pay rent. A coworker starts a union and recruits Cash. However, when attending a protest sees him promoted instead of fired, Cash begins to feel uncomfortable with his work situation and starts to delve into the company’s secrets.
This film is worth seeing for the fresh voice and story. Cash’s plight is relevant now, and will continue to remain so for a number of years to come.
Sorry to Bother You
