Chief Chick Comments

Jeffrey Wright plays "Monk" Ellison who is forced on leave from his professorship at a California University for being "abrasive" (just like another Oscar nominated film). He comes home to Boston where a few big surprises greet him. His recent book hasn't been picked up by publishers because they want a "black experience" book while Monk is a Harvard education guy from an upper middle class Boston family who has not experienced "gutter" life. As a joke to himself, he writes a tongue-in-cheek novel pretending as the author to be a fugitive convict. A little sad at times, but very funny. I laughed out loud a number of times and loved this movie even with the unresolved parts.
