Golden Globe Winner: Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy.
With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau – an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable – into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece 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.
“Franco, who’s absolutely hysterical as the brooding, deluded Wiseau, leads a parade of familiar faces…delivering a winning, Ed Wood-esque blend of comedy and pathos that could very well earn its own cult status.” –Michael Rechtshaffen, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“The Disaster Artist — a new film about the making of The Room — is not only the rare example of a genuinely funny biopic, but a subtle meta-commentary on the state of cult filmmaking.” – Adi Robertson, THE VERGE
