Can you really ever trust anyone?

Tommy Wiseau's electrifying debut as lead actor, screenwriter, executive producer and director continues to reverberate with audiences around the world. THE ROOM is equal parts melodrama, black comedy and a psychosexual deconstruction of modern relationships as seen in the crumbling relationship of two San Francisco professionals.

Wiseau's script takes time to establish a larger world in banker Johnny (Wiseau)'s apartment building, where he resides with future wife Lisa (Juliette Daniel), a young woman struggling to find work in the fiercely competitive computer industry. Early in the film we're introduced to Denny, Johnny's adopted charge, a curious young man with debts he has trouble repaying. Then there's Mark (Greg Sestero), Johnny's best friend and confidant. Handsome, troubled, and bearded, Mark's weakness proves to be a spark that ignites a raging inferno.

The fuller cast of THE ROOM is acutely representative of post-9/11 America herself -- elderly cancer patients, young lovers, and concerned psychiatrists. It's with this set of characters that Wiseau weaves a story of profound betrayal that's stuck with audiences for years. (John Smith)
