JT LeRoy – aka Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy – is the pseudonym of Savannah Knoop, who wrote the tale about her life – possibly…, here played by Kristen Stewart (Personal Shopper), who spends six years pretending to be the celebrated author of this name, who’s actually the made-up literary persona of her sister-in-law, Laura Albert (Laura Dern).
There’s very few times when Kristen Stewart is not captivating, and this does look very amusing and I’m really looking forward to it.
JT LeRoy is released in the UK on August 12th.
Director: Justin Kelly
Also stars: Jim Sturgess, Courtney Love, Stella Maxwell
