Tommy Wiseau’s debut (and only) feature THE ROOM — a would-be epic about love, betrayal, and a room — has become a bona fide cult cinema icon in the decade since its release, playing midnight shows regularly around the world. Its fans adore it in ways not seen since THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. There’s just one problem: it’s completely, mind-blowingly bad, in idiosyncratic ways no Hollywood director could ever hope to achieve.

Based on the best-selling book by Greg Sestero (THE ROOM’s Mark), THE DISASTER ARTIST is not just a chronicle of the making of the world’s worst movie, but a portrait of an artist bent on realising his vision, and of a human being struggling to relate to his fellow man. Starring James Franco (who also directed, in character) as Wiseau, Dave Franco as Sestero, and a comic ensemble including Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Zac Efron, and Melanie Griffith, it’s a weird, hilarious and touching story that received a standing ovation at its SXSW premiere.

If Tommy Wiseau is a modern-day Ed Wood, then THE DISASTER ARTIST is a modern-day answer to ED WOOD: a rousing love letter to filmmaking, to friendship, and to artistic vision — no matter how misguided.
