"To make a movie that's so bad it's good you need vision, drive, luck and obsessive vanity. Fortuitously, Tommy Wiseau appears to possess all of these qualities." —Steve Rose, The Guardian
"If there is a 21st-century Edward D. Wood Jr., it is probably Tommy Wiseau." —Jason Bailey, Flavorwire

Everything seems to be going well for Johnny. He's a successful banker, and he's madly in love with his girlfriend Lisa —but when Lisa grows tired of her life with Johnny, she seduces his best friend Mark and weaves a web of betrayal that will tear Johnny apart and shake the very foundations of...The Room!
It's hard to believe that Tommy Wiseau's strangely fascinating and completely bewildering magnum opus is 20 years old. It's been a long, strange road for this masterpiece of outsider art, a wonderfully bad medley of wooden dialogue, gaudy green screens, nonsensical plots, and an inordinate amount of artwork featuring spoons.
Completely financed and distributed by Mr. Wiseau, this divine piece of WTF-ery has built a cult following playing midnight screenings across the country and solidified its place as an insanely unique phenomenon. Those who panned the film during its initial release couldn't have foreseen that it would take on a life of its own and garner such an enthusiastic cult following.
Greg Sestero is the New York Times best-selling co-author of the Academy Award-nominated The Disaster Artist and co-star of the cult classic The Room. Greg also recently wrote and produced Best F(r)iends Volume 1 and Volume 2 and was recently seen in Netflix's popular gothic-drama mini-series The Haunting of Bly Manor. His directorial debut, Miracle Valley featured a scene filmed at Frank Lloyd Wright's world-renowned masterpiece Falling Water. His next movie, Forbidden Sky, is an alien abduction tale set in Roswell, New Mexico.
