A movie Filled with Wigs & Fraud & Complete Ridiculousness: Movie Review – J.T. Leroy

OMG this is one of the silliest movies ever.

Based on a true story. A woman book author wrote a story about a fictional character who’s life was based on her actual life events.

She decided to have her sister-in-law pretend to be the male character of the book, J.T. Leroy. This was helping the author create fan fare, new circles of friends with celebrities and a way to promote her band she had with her husband.

Unfortunately, she picked the wrong woman to be J.T. The wigs were never convincing when she wore them in public and in fact they were women wigs with long tresses.

And worst of all, an actress set to play the mother of J.T. in a movie had a liking for Kristen Stewart who played J.T. But turns out she really didn’t like her not to mention she realized J.T. was actually a girl when she tried to hook up with her, but all she wanted was rights to the movie.

J.T. couldn’t manage to keep her emotions out of it, her speaking voice was inconsistent with how the author spoke over the phone as J.T., and J.T. didn’t show a consistent look in public revealing him to be a woman, a fraud.

The author and the J.T. character eventually got caught as people saw her in public and put the pictures together.

This encouraged the author to come out and tell her story as J.T. instead of hiding behind someone else.

In the end Kristen Stewart, who played J.T. moved to NY to become a writer and the book author regained her following. Funny quote in movie was the author told Kristen Stewart, just because you played a writer doesn’t mean you are one. I suppose she is right although earlier in the movie she encouraged her to step out her comfort zone and to be different.
