In the early 2000s, aspiring actors Tommy Wiseau (James Franco) and Greg Sestero (Dave Franco) make a movie together called The Room, which through Wiseau’s wildly eccentric filmmaking style and the growing frustration between him and the rest of the crew would come to be known as one of the worst movies of all time…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Director-star James Franco’s tragicomic exploration of one of pop culture’s most baffling but exhilaratingly awful movies is both hilarious and also a beautiful love letter to the art and passion of moviemaking.
