“Sorry To Bother You” With This Gift Guide

by Zoë Naseef

2018 has been a long year—from the separation of migrant families to the Kavanaugh hearings to Trump trying to write trans folk out of existence. However, one of the only good things to come out of 2018 is Boots Riley’s film Sorry to Bother You. I might have a special soft spot for Sorry to Bother You because I saw it on my second date with my partner while eating cheesy tater tots, but it is an incredible movie nonetheless. Although Boots Riley is the producer and Keith Stanfield plays the main character, Tessa Thompson is the true feminist icon of the film. And if you’re like me and want to have all of her earrings, well, now you can!
