Where to Watch ‘American Fiction’?: The 48th annual Toronto International Film Festival witnessed the premier of various promising films. Among them, American Fiction—a comedy-drama film quickly caught viewers’ attention. The movie, an adaptation of Percival Everett’s 2001 novel, Erasure, won the ‘People’s Choice Award’ at the event.  The movie centers around a frustrated novelist who, following the latest trend, writes a stereotypical Black book in jest, only for it to be published and win critical acclaim. Directed by Cord Jefferson, the movie stars Jeffrey Wright, Tracee Ellis Ross, Issa Rae, and Sterling K. Brown.

What is the plot of ‘American Fiction’?

American Fiction depicts the story of a novelist named Monk (Jeffrey Wright) who is sick of the establishment making money off of “Black” entertainment that plays on offensive and cliched stereotypes. His most recent novel isn’t selling to anyone, and his previous books have failed miserably. On the other hand, a former publishing assistant, Sinatra Golden (Issa Rae), successfully caters to its readers’ interest by writing the book “We’s Lives in Da Ghetto”.

Monk believes that Sinatra’s book feeds into the worst misconceptions about Black people’s lives and is fake and misleading. He cannot dispute its financial success, though. To support his point of view, Monk creates an insane “Black” book under a pen name that drives him to the brink of insanity and the very thing he professes to despise.
