The tragicomic true story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau, an artist whose passion is as sincere as his methods are questionable. Based on actor Greg Sestero’s tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic stinker The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing. “[James] Franco’s own movie works best as a portrait of the complicated friendship between Greg and Tommy, and it’s an inspired idea to have real-life brothers Dave and James play best friends—we can sense alternating undercurrents of exasperation and affection beneath every exchange.” (Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice)
James Franco took home the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy.
