Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero become close friends after meeting in an acting class in San Francisco. Striving for Hollywood stardom, Sestero moves to Los Angeles to appear in his friend’s self-financed movie project. Wiseau writes, directs and stars in the resulting film “The Room”, a critically dammed movie destined to become a great cult classic. What could easily be a cruel send-up isn’t.
