Produced and directed by James Franco, The Disaster Artist is a biographical comedy-drama, based on the non-fiction book of the same name by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell. The film features a stellar cast of James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogan, Josh Hutcherson, Jackie Weaver and Alison Brie to name a few.
After meeting at an acting class, Tommy (James Franco) and Greg (Dave Franco) make their way to Hollywood to pursue their shared dream of acting. Not getting anywhere the pair decide to make a movie masterpiece of their own, The Room, which is widely thought to be the worst movie ever made.
For a film about the making of a film, The Disaster Artist could possibly be the best movie of 2017. The story has charm, the acting is spot on and it’s hysterically entertaining. If James Franco wins a prestigious award of any kind, that will be the icing on the cake. Spend the money and go see this film!
