Directed by Jeff Feuerzeig
“Wildly entertaining and informative, but also alive and ever-changing, provoking new questions at each turn. It’s the movie this crazy, endlessly fascinating story deserves.”
—Vulture

Armed with a tortured backstory and some scintillating subject matter, gender-non-conforming teen author JT LeRoy burst onto the literary scene in the late 90s, finding friends and champions among the likes of Winona Ryder, Billy Corgan, and Gus Van Sant. Two novels, one film adaptation, and several media appearances later, this much-publicized wunderkind was exposed as the fabrication of Laura Albert, a Brooklyn mother with a fake British accent and a troubled past of her own. Drawing on tell-all interviews and a wealth of archival material, including an unforgettable phone recording with Courtney Love, Author authoritatively unravels one of the biggest controversies in contemporary American fiction. An Amazon Studios/Magnolia Pictures release.
