The trailer for Boots Riley’s I’m A Virgo follows the adventures of a 13-foot-tall young man

From visionary filmmaker Boots Riley, I’M A VIRGO is a darkly-comedic fantastical coming-of-age joyride about Cootie (Jharrel Jerome), a 13-foot-tall young Black man in Oakland, CA. Having grown up hidden away, passing time on a diet of comic books and TV shows, he escapes to experience the beauty and contradictions of the real world. He forms friendships, finds love, navigates awkward situations, and encounters his idol, the real-life superhero named The Hero, played by Walton Goggins. I’M A VIRGO is a mythical odyssey that questions the purpose of the mythical odyssey.

Directed by Boots Riley (Sorry to Bother You), the show stars Jharrel Jerome, Mike Epps, Carmen Ejogo, Brett Gray, Kara Young, Allius Barnes, Olivia Washington and Walton Goggins.

I’m A Virgo will have its world premiere on 11th March 2023 at the SXSW Film & TV Festival. It will then be on Prime Video later in the year.
