Film: AUTHOR: THE JT LEROY STORY
New York magazines October 2005 issue sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked it boy wunderkind JT LeRoy, whose tough prose about his sordid childhood had captivated icons and luminaries internationally. It turned out LeRoy didnt actually exist. He was dreamed up by 40-year-old San Francisco punk rocker and phone sex operator, Laura Albert.

AUTHOR: THE JT LEROY STORY takes us down the infinitely fascinating rabbit hole of how Laura Albertlike a Cyrano de Bergerac on steroidsbreathed not only words, but life, into her avatar for a decade. Alberts epic and entertaining account plunges us into a glittery world of rock shows, fashion events, and the Cannes red carpet where LeRoy becomes a mysterious sensation. As she recounts this astonishing odyssey, Albert also reveals the intricate web spun by irrepressible creative forces within her. Her extended and layered JT LeRoy performance still infuriates many; but for Albert, channeling her brilliant fiction through another identity was the only possible path to self-expression.
