Author: The JT LeRoy Story
  • Year2016
  • Duration110 min

In the late 1990s, teenager JT LeRoy shot to fame with tales woven from his troubled life. Courtney Love and other A-listers were quick to claim friendship as he wrote successive blockbusters. But in 2005 the scales fell away to reveal one Laura Albert, a talented fantasist. Jeff Feuerzeig’s telling of her story is as energetic and creative as Barton herself in this spellbinding doc.
