What is The Disaster Artist about?

San Francisco, 1998: 19-year-old Greg Sestero meets Tommy Wiseau in acting classes with Jean Shelton after Tommy gives a protracted and bizarre performance of a scene from A Streetcar Named Desire. Greg is impressed by Tommy's fearlessness and the two become friends, although Tommy exhibits several unusual habits and mannerisms. Tommy insists on being from New Orleans, despite having a strange European-esque accent. On Tommy's suggestion, they move to Los Angeles to pursue acting careers. Sestero discovers that Wiseau can afford apartments in both San Francisco and Los Angeles, but Wiseau will not discuss his personal life or the source of his wealth. Greg signs with talent agent Iris Burton and regularly attends auditions, while Tommy is consistently rejected by agencies, acting teachers, casting directors and producers. Greg begins dating Amber, whom he meets at her job at a nightclub, and Tommy grows jealous, believing that their relationship is sabotaging his with Greg; as he continuously fails to find work, he becomes disheartened. As Greg's auditions also dry up, he shares his frustrations with Tommy, who decides to make a movie for them to star in. Tommy writes a screenplay titled The Room, a melodrama about a love triangle between banker Johnny (played by Tommy), his future wife Lisa and his best friend Mark. Greg reluctantly accepts the role of Mark and a line producer credit. They rent out the Burns & Sawyer production house; Tommy insists on buying all the production equipment and shooting the film on 35mm film and HD Digital simultaneously, costly and unnecessary measures. The employees introduce Tommy to Raphael Smadja and Sandy Schklair, who work as his cinematographer and script supervisor respectively. Actress Juliette Danielle is cast in the role of Lisa.
