MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Justin Kelly
Cast: Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern, Jim Sturgess, ...

A story as remarkable as that of J.T. LeRoy deserves a more compelling rendition than the one presented in Justin Kelly’s interpretation.

Although the story is interesting, the presentation isn’t. Individual scenes work but the movie as a whole doesn’t.
