One of the most celebrated literary figures of our time never existed at all. J.T. LeRoy is the wild true story of a woman named Savannah Knoop who posed as the titular author at the urging of her sister-in-law. In truth, LeRoy was always fictitious — he was nothing more than the pen name of Knoop's sister-in-law, but for a time, members of the Hollywood and fashion elite became enamored with the mercurial figure they knew only as J.T. LeRoy. The film stars Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern.
