About this movie

Based on Savannah Knoop's memoir Girl Boy Girl: How I Became JT Leroy, Laura Albert (Laura Dern) writes as her "avatar," a troubled young man named JT LeRoy. When her debut novel becomes a best-seller and "JT" becomes the darling of the literary world, Laura comes up with a unique solution to preserve her anonymity but give life to her creation, convincing her boyfriend's androgynous fun-loving sister, Savannah (Kristen Stewart) to don a plethora of outlandish disguises and present as JT to the public and the world's media. Together, they embark on a wild ride of double lives, infiltrating the Hollywood and literary elite, whilst going on their own personal journeys of discovery and identity.
