Director: James Franco
Starring: James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogan, Zac Efron
This film is a bit like a surprise, and unexpectedly nice. I agree James Franco deserves recognition as it is amazing how a story of failure and disappointment can be transformed in to a good entertaining film.
This film is about the aspiring actor and film maker Tommy Wiseau and his journey of making a really bad, probably the worst ever film which becomes the cult movie “The Room”.
I have not watched the film “The Room” neither have heard of Tommy Wiseau before, but James Franco and his brother and co-star Dave Franco has managed to show a story of friendship, empathy and passion in addition to some comedy in style.
For me it is like seeing James Franco acting for the first time, I can hardly recognize him while he is completely absorbed in to the lonely, strange, bruised weird character including the strange accent.
My rating of 7/10 is mostly based on the performance of James Franco
The film has received two nominations for the Golden Globe Award in the categories of Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and won the later with no nominations for the Bafta
