Bust out those plastic spoons! Tommy Wiseau’s The Room is returning in all its football-throwing glory just in time for the holidays!

Wiseau’s peerless magnum opus finds the auteur who shaped a generation taking on the arts of acting, writing, casting, directing, editing and more. What’s even more remarkable: he’s mastered them all. The multi-talented director stars as Johnny, a big-time banker working in gorgeously shot San Francisco. His fiancée Lisa, seemingly a happy part of a successful relationship, has wandering eyes…for Tommy’s best friend Mark. Cinema has never witnessed such betrayal! On top of that, their friends and family members have close calls with everything from drug dealers to cancer, building up to an unexpected conclusion that will shock audiences to their core!

An intense, sensual thriller, The Room is an intricately knit web of sweet secrets and bitter lies that interrogates the very form of drama itself as well as a truly unforgettable piece of cinema.
