In an alternate reality of present-day Oakland, California, telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield, Get Out, FX’s Atlanta) finds himself in a macabre universe after he discovers a magical key that leads to material glory. Cassius soon falls under the spell of Steve Lift (Armie Hammer, Call Me by Your Name), a cocaine-snorting CEO who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams. Cassius must decide whether financial success is worth sacrificing both his ideals and the love of his life, his free-thinking, anti-capitalist girlfriend, Detroit (Tessa Thompson, Dear White People, Annihilation). Directed by legendary Oakland musician Boots Riley, Sorry to Bother You is a fearlessly ambitious, genre-defying wild ride that firmly establishes Riley as one of cinema’s most exciting new voices.
