J.T. LeRoy

Biography, Drama 1h 48m 2018

The most outrageous and fascinating literary hoax of recent times is dramatised in this adaptation of Savannah Knoop’s memoir Girl Boy Girl: How I Became JT LeRoy. Knoop spent six years pretending to be the celebrated author JT LeRoy, the made-up literary persona of their sister-in-law. A brilliant story about the fluidity of identity, with Kristen Stewart note-perfect as the enigmatic Knoop.

“JT LeRoy may have been an elaborate fib, but Kelly finds a genuine pearl of wisdom in the web of deception.” ~ The Guardian.
