In 2003, Tommy Wiseau, an aspiring actor and slacker, goes to Los Angeles with his buddy (Dave Franco) to try his hand at acting. We don't know where Tommy comes from or how he made his money. But he is passionate about the movies and will not rest until the world learns of his genius. For now, since he is more often considered a weirdo than a true artist, he decides to make a movie himself, without any major studies. He hires the entire crew, writes the screenplay for the masterpiece, calls it The Room ... and spends $ 6 million on production. The rest is history. Tommy and his movie permanently entered the canon of terrible movies that you just can't stop watching. Just as you can't take your eyes off James Franco, who plays Wiseau himself. Franco returns to AFF (As I Lay Dying, 4th AFF) and you know you can't wait to see this movie! "Variety" called it The most fascinating movie of James Franco's wildly eccentric oeuvre.
