Author: The JT Leroy Story

Dir. Jeff Feuerzeig | Run time: 110 min | Rating: NR

Armed with a tortured backstory and some scintillating subject matter, gender-non-conforming teen author JT LeRoy burst onto the literary scene in the late 90s, finding friends and champions among the likes of Winona Ryder, Billy Corgan, and Gus Van Sant. Two novels, one film adaptation, and several media appearances later, this much-publicized wunderkind was exposed as the fabrication of Laura Albert, a Brooklyn mother with a fake British accent and a troubled past of her own.
