Fiction makes the world go round. We often lose ourselves in characters and words, on screens, in pages, and of our own imagination. We escape through the eyes of someone else and yearn for more beyond the gifts that we are given. Sometimes, however, a true story can be embellished, or rather made up entirely such as JT LeRoy.
His tough and sordid childhood had captivated thousands of famous people and literary icons until it was discovered that the “it boy” of childhood abuse (yeesh) wasn’t real. In fact, he was made up by former phone-sex operator turned housewife Laura Albert.
In a brand new documentary by Jeff Feuerzeig, you’ll learn all about Laura Albert an her stories as well as the rock and roll world she was thrust into following her story. Check out the trailer for the film.
