Finally, the dynamic duo that is Greg Sestero & Tommy Wiseau has re-united for a dream project that will send fans of cult favorite THE ROOM into paroxysms of unabated joy. Sestero plays a drifter who arrives in L.A. physically unharmed but mentally bruised and winds up begging on the mean Angeleno streets. He is resigned to a hand-to-mouth existence until he crosses paths with a peculiar mortician (Wiseau), and an evening of work turns into a regular gig for the drifter. The two find themselves engaged in an unusual yet increasingly lucrative underground enterprise but as the money rolls in, jealousy, anger and greed start to poison their initially warm, if odd, partnership. Will these best f®iends survive the turning tide?
THE ROOM • Screening Format: DCP
2003, TPW Films, 99 min, USA, Dir: Tommy Wiseau
Tommy Wiseau’s independently financed, directed, acted and edited cult hit has been playing cinema screens across the world almost every week for thirteen years and counting. Wiseau stars as San Francisco banker Johnny, whose fiancée Lisa (Juliette Danielle) begins an affair with Johnny’s best friend Mark (Greg Sestero). With a carnival-esque array of Douglas-Sirk-meets-John-Waters characters meandering in and out of the storyline, this mesmerizing film defies any preconception you have of cinema with its wildly unorthodox approach to filmmaking as a craft.
