Drama

In Cinemas, truth really is wilder than fiction in this captivating retelling of one of the literary world's most infamous hoaxes. Laura Albert (Laura Dern: 'Big Little Lies') writes as her "avatar," a disenfranchised young queer man named JT LeRoy. When her debut novel becomes a best-seller and JT becomes the darling of the literary world, she comes up with a unique solution to preserve her anonymity but give life to her nom-de-plume. Enter her boyfriend's androgynous sister Savannah Knoop (Kristen Stewart: 'The Twilight Saga', 'Charlie's Angels'), who connects with Laura's punk, feminist, outsider universe and agrees to be JT in the public eye. Together, they embark on a wild ride of double lives, infiltrating the Hollywood and literary elite, and discovering who they are while pretending to be someone else. Hilarious and tragic in equal measures, 'JT LeRoy' tells the story of the incredible 'true lie' that shook pop culture.
