I’ve been looking forward to seeing this movie for a while and was rewarded with a very enjoyable experience. This is a very solid film about family and finding your identity.

I’ve been dealing with how I work with unexpected things happening in my life and how to find joy in all the chaos.

This movie gives me hope in that I can also find some mirth in all the madness.

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.
