"14 years later, this is the same old Tommy, and those who have worn out their DVD copies of The Room are going to go nuts for it." – Ben Pearson, Slashfilm
Greg Sestero, star of the film and writer of The Disaster Artist, will attend both screenings of Best F(r)iends!
Cult-movie heroes Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero reunite for a dark comedy thriller inspired by a road trip made by Sestero and Wiseau after the production of The Room in April 2003. When a drifter (Sestero) is taken in by a peculiar mortician (Wiseau), the two hatch an underground enterprise off the back of the mortician's old habits. But greed, hatred and jealousy soon come in turn, and their efforts unravel, causing the drifter to run off with the spoils and leaving the mortician adrift. An expedition across the Southwest introduces wild and crazy characters through a series of twisted and dark foibles as both men learn a valuable lesson about friendship and loyalty. Best F(r)iends also costars Paul Scheer (The League, The Disaster Artist, Veep) Vince Jolivette (Spring Breakers) and features a musical score created by Daniel Platzman of Imagine Dragons.
