Closing Night & After Party: Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy
2019 MQFF Closing Night Presentation
Kristen Stewart is at her charismatic best in this wilder than fiction true account of the infamous literary scam that fooled Hollywood. Stewart plays the androgynous Savannah Knoop who spent six years pretending to be the celebrated male author JT LeRoy, the made-up literary persona of her sister-in-law Laura Albert, played here by Laura Dern at her prickly best. Featuring Courtney Love, Jim Sturgess and Diane Kruger and directed by Justin Kelly (I Am Michael, King Cobra, MQFF 2017), Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy is an intriguing and provocative tale on the slippery nature of celebrity, gender and sexuality.
Join us after the screening for closing night drinks, music and celebrations at ACMI lightwell.
