Plot summary

What is The Disaster Artist movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Disaster Artist" movie plot summary.

In San Francisco in 1998, 19-year-old Greg Sestero (Dave Franco) befriends Tommy Wiseau (James Franco) in acting classes with Jean Shelton (Melanie Griffith) after Tommy gives a protracted and bizarre performance of a scene from A Streetcar Named Desire. Greg is impressed by his fearlessness, although Tommy exhibits unusual habits and mannerisms; for instance, Tommy can afford apartments in both San Francisco and Los Angeles, but he will not discuss his personal life or the source of his wealth, and he insists he is from New Orleans despite having a European accent. On Tommy's suggestion, they move to Los Angeles to pursue acting careers. Greg signs with talent agent Iris Burton (Sharon Stone) and regularly attends auditions, while Tommy is consistently rejected by agencies, acting teachers, casting directors and producers.
Greg begins dating Amber (Alison Brie), 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 film for them to star in. Tommy writes the screenplay for The Room, a melodrama about a love triangle between banker Johnny (played by Tommy), his fiancรฉe 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 (Paul Scheer) and Sandy Schklair (Seth Rogen), who work as his cinematographer and script supervisor, respectively. Actress Juliette Danielle (Ari Graynor) is cast as Lisa. Production starts smoothly, but Tommy is difficult to work with. He forgets his lines, arrives late, and refuses to supply his crew with basic needs such as drinking water and air conditioning.
