Nominated for 2 Golden Globes and 7 AACTA Awards, this true story explores the insidious nature of gay conversion programs.

When Jared (Lucas Hedges) confesses to his conservative ultra-religious parents (Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe) that he “likes boys”, they send him to one of these camps – run by Victor Sykes (Joel Edgerton) – in order to “fix his addiction”. As he interacts with the other kids in the program, Jared gradually learns more about himself and finds the strength to challenge the adults in his life.

Cassius "Cash" Green (Lakeith Stanfield) lives in his uncle’s garage and takes up a job in telemarketing to make ends meet. He struggles to make sales, until an older co-worker teaches him to use a "white voice" to speak to prospective customers.

The trick works wonders, and as Cash’s career begins to take off, he is soon forced to choose between a life of luxury or supporting the plight of his oppressed friends.

Sorry to Bother You is the brilliant and highly acclaimed directorial debut from rapper and political activist Boots Riley. This surreal satire is a wild and crazy ride that offers brutal commentary on the current social and political climate.
