At the Box Office: The Disaster Artist

Morning Show

This week on Local 44 Morning Brew, Champlain College professor of film making Julia Swift reviewed a movie about another movie, The Disaster Artist.

The film is a true story of two friends who funded and released a movie called The Room, back in 2002.

The Disaster Artist follows two wanna-be actor friends who move to LA. One of the pair is ridiculously rich, so he decides to spend 6 million dollars on a movie, and make their dreams come true. The only problem? Neither of them know anything about film making. Their film, which would go on to become The Room, is well-known for being “the worst movie ever made.”

The film stars real-life brothers,  James and Dave Franco. James Franco also served as director.

The film is Rated R.
