Stewart and Dern Bring Duality to “JT LeRoy” in Trailer for Biopic

Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern bring a sense of duality in the true story of a famous author in the trailer for JT LeRoy.


In the film, Stewart plays Samantha Knoop, a young woman who finds herself taking the identity of JT LeRoy, a famous author who is the pen name of her sister-in-law, played by Dern. When “LeRoy” gets famous, soon enough, that fame comes at a price.

Jim Sturgess, Courtney Love, and Diane Kruger co-star in the film. Justin Kelly directed the film from a screenplay he co-wrote with the real-life Samantha Knoop.

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment will release JT LeRoy in select theaters, VOD, and Digital on April 26.
