Bristol's Everyman Cinema set to host special double screening of Best F(r)iends vol. 1 and 2 followed by live Q&A with star Greg Sestero

Posted on: 12 Oct 2018

Thrust into the limelight by the hit 2017 film The Disaster Artist, Greg Sestero has hit the road this year in support of his new project, Best F(r)iends. The two-part film, following the story of a homeless LA drifter who finds work in a morgue, only to realise his boss is hiding a mysterious past. A very special double screening, followed by a live in-person Q&A with the man himself, will be held at Everyman Cinema on Tuesday 30th October.

Best F(r)iends is the latest film starring Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero.

Born in 1978, actor and author Greg Sestero's journey to Hollywood is surely one of the strangest of all time. Having formed a friendship with the mysterious and eccentric Tommy Wiseau in his hometown of Walnut Creek, California, the pair travelled to Los Angeles to pursue careers in acting.

 

Wiseau went on to produce, direct and fully self-fund his own film, titled The Room, with Sestero as the star. The film has become something of a cult phenomenon since its 2003 release, regarded by many as the ultimate 'so bad it's good' movie. It spawned The Disaster Artist in 2017, starring James and Dave Franco as Tommy and Greg, which has pushed the incredible story into worldwide consciousness.

 

From there, Greg Sestero and Tommy Wiseau have continued their on-screen partnership, with the two parts of Best F(r)iends premiering in US cinemas in spring and summer 2018. Hosted by Bristol Bad Film Club, Bristol's Everyman Cinema is set to hold a very special double screening of the new project, followed by a live, in-person Q&A with the man himself. Don't miss it!

 

Tickets for the double screening of Best F(r)iends followed by a live Q&A with Greg Sestero are on sale now and can be found here. For more information or to see what else is coming up at Everyman, visit their website or check out their Facebook page.
