In 2006, The New York Times sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked “it boy” wunderkind JT LeRoy, whose tough prose about a sordid childhood had captivated icons and luminaries internationally. It turned out LeRoy didn’t actually exist. He was the creative expression of 40-year-old San Francisco former phone-sex operator turned housewife, Laura Albert. From the director of The Devil and Daniel Johnston, Author: The JT LeRoy Story takes us down the infinitely fascinating rabbit hole of how Laura Albert—like a Cyrano de Bergerac on steroids—breathed not only words, but life, into her avatar for a decade. Her epic and entertaining account plunges us into a glittery world of rock shows and fashion events, ultimately revealing that channeling her brilliant fiction through another identity was the only possible path to self-expression.

In theatres September 9th

Boston Strong says:

I have never heard, read or seen anything about this person or story till last nights "Tell All"
After watching the documentary last night…
I don't see in any way, shape or form why a lawsuits could even go forward??
I'm so confused why people are so upset??
WHY…Just because the real writer didn't want to come forward
(Most likely do to low self-esteem)
How can anyone believe this is a hoax??
The only thing I see & can understand is, she didn't come forward saying its ME!
In my honest opinion…
She did the same exact thing with her book and a person pretending to be  JT Leroy Story..
"ITS all frictional"
Just ike her books, the person played as JT Leroy are
all in a frictional world.
"All frictional and all frictional characters"
Tell me why that's against the law?
In a country where we live its called..
" Freedom of Speach"
It seems to me the only ones that are totally pissed off about any of this is..
The ones with to much money $$$ in their pockets!
Those people need to take what they have learned from this situation and realize..
Yes, there is true stories just like the ones wrote in the books.
Go take your cold hearts
and help others in need just like in the stories.
Some many people could use a hot meal, a place to lay their heads and a pair of shoes, or just a shit box of a car to get to work with!
Go do some goodness
There's plenty out there that could use a little Love ❤

something to the public like she did in her stories..
Played a frictional role!

MrSurferRosa says:

Laura Albert is a genius! And all these celebrities are pathetic 😉

Cadge says:

If you don't get why celebrities are on the hate trump train, watch this. nothing but globalist puppets

derek diamond says:

She's a bad writer, non of these people have any talent, because the general public will believe anything, why – because they are stupid .

Prattly Ponsarello says:

Reminded me of Exit Through the Gift Shop. Left me with a very unpleasant taste in my mouth. The glomming on of used up mediocre entertainers (Courtney Love, as usual, comes off as complete trash) to the character playing the author is particularly nauseating.
