Staring: LaKeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson
In this comedy satire, set in alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green (pronounced “cash is green”) is broke, but his dead end job takes a dramatic turn when he is advised by a grizzled old timer to use a “white voice”.
This turns him into an instant success and he is catapulted upstairs to join the “power callers” and workplace luxury, and where Cassius finds out the awful truth about the corporation of which this telesales company is merely a part.
The film then becomes more twisted and surreal, as Cassius falls under the spell of the cocaine-snorting CEO, whilst his friends and co-workers organise to protest against corporate oppression. 7.45 – 9.34
