In between the double feature, attendees are invited to a reception in the Furman Gallery sponsored by Radeberger. Must be 21+ to receive complimentary beer.
Extraordinary times demand extraordinary stories, and with Sorry to Bother You, director Boots Riley (the frontman of legendary political rap group The Coup) delivered this funny, scathing, weird, and audacious satire. Among a cast that includes Armie Hammer, Danny Glover, and Steven Yeun, Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out) plays a telemarketer at a company with a brave new world in mind for the country. A gonzo lampoon on late capitalism, politics, and modern love, Riley’s debut feature has been described by the director as “an absurdist dark comedy with magical realism and science fiction inspired by the world of telemarketing.”
