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

There’s a point at which the “more of the same” mantra changes to “been there, done that.”

Falls afoul of tonal inconsistencies which can be especially detrimental in a story with its roots so deeply embedded in an abhorrent historical episode.

Feels a little too much like a money grab and, although moderately entertaining on a popcorn level, there’s a sense of missed opportunity.

It’s an all-in performance, with Zellweger doing more than merely mimicking Garland.

Despite the whiff of “Oscar bait” surrounding the production, it’s a well-made, affecting tale about do-gooders who do good rather than merely muddying the waters.
