Synopsis

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) is struggling to make a living. He gets a job as a telemarketer, but it's not until a fellow black employee (Danny Glover) advises him to use his "white" voice, that Cassius becomes successful. He gets promoted to being a "power caller," which puts him on the upper floor, where he's provided all kinds of perks.

However, he soon discovers that what he is being asked to do is morally wrong. His girlfriend Detroit (Tessa Thompson) objects, even when CEO Steve Lift (Armie Hammer) offers him $100,000,000.

  • 1 star "There were only a few funny moments but the main character's acting was really bad. Then came the really weird white person voice, which made me cringe. They couldn't even do a good job at matching the voice to the actor's lips. I notice that they tried to hide his mouth so it wasn't so obvious that the voice and lip movements didn't match."
