Counterpoints

by Now Then Sheffield

(Tommy Wiseau, USA, 2003)
10 October, 7.30pm | Sheffield University Union Auditorium | £3.50

Written, produced by and starring its director, Five and Dime Picture Show Sheffield, who’re organising this interactive screening, describe this film as Wiseau’s ‘so-bad-it's-good masterpiece’. Ostensibly an indie romantic drama, it established a cult following after its initial viewers in California were amused by its flaws and peculiar approach to storytelling. Fancy dress ‘strongly encouraged’.
