Author: The JT Leroy Story

In the mid 1990s a new wunderkind appeared on the literary scene, and took the world by storm. JT LeRoy (Jeremiah 'Terminator' LeRoy) was a young writer, from a very troubled background, with tales of abuse, prostitution and a life on the streets. This fascinating new voice started making waves with articles appearing in magazines such as Nerve and Shout NY and when his first novel Sarah was published in 1999, and he began to make public appearances, his fame ascended at a rapid pace. The showbiz world took LeRoy into their fold, and everyone wanted to be seen with the "it" person of the moment...

But all was not what it seemed.

In 2005 New York magazine's October issue sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked JT LeRoy, whose tough prose about his sordid childhood had captivated icons and luminaries internationally. It turned out LeRoy didn't actually exist.

Now a brand new film from Jeff Feuerzeig (The Devil and Daniel Johnston) Author: The JT LeRoy Story, which arrives in UK cinemas on 29 July 2016 from Dogwoof following its UK Premiere at Sundance London on 4 June 2016, takes us down the infinitely fascinating rabbit hole of how one woman -like a Cyrano de Bergerac on steroids-breathed not only words, but life, into her avatar for a decade. This epic and entertaining account plunges us into a glittery world of rock shows, fashion events, and the Cannes red carpet where LeRoy becomes a mysterious sensation. Finally the person behind the enigma recounts an astonishing odyssey.

The Booth at the End

Chilling psychological TV series The Booth At The End wowed critics and audiences alike when it aired in the US and now this gripping thriller created and written by Christopher Kubasik (What Lives Inside) and from Michael Eisner's groundbreaking multi-platform studio Vuguru, comes to UK DVD for the first time.

A father whose child is dying of Leukaemia. An elderly woman who wants to restore her husband's failing memory. A nun who no longer hears the voice of God. A man who wants to wipe out every trace of his second marriage. In desperation they each enter a Faustian pact with a mysterious man who always sits in the same seat at the local diner. The Man (Xander Berkeley - 24, Terminator 2), can make their deepest desire a reality, but only if they complete the task he assigns them - a task that can have extreme, even deadly, consequences.

One must rob a bank; another must protect a little girl; one has to make a number of people cry; another is instructed to build a bomb and set it off in a crowded restaurant. Sometimes the assignments are in direct opposition to one another, sometimes the clients have to work together. Each story is revealed at close quarters from the same spot in the diner, through dialogue in which The Man shifts from confessor to therapist to puppetmaster. As the stories begin to intersect, some clients mess up or change their minds, while others complete their task only to discover that what they wished for isn't what they really wanted after all. Both series of this thrilling show come to DVD as The Booth at the End: Series 1 and 2 on 11 July 2016 courtesy of Simpy Media.
