alt SEE THE THRILLING CONCLUSION OF THE SESTERO-WISEAU SAGA!

Greg Sestero in person for Q&A and meet and greet

Comedy/drama/thriller; In English; 120 minutes; 2018

Picking up where the first volume left off, BEST F(R)IENDS: VOLUME 2 brings the saga to a satisfying close. Jon (Sestero) is on the run across the American Southwest, where he meets an array of wild and amazing characters and finds himself in ever-stranger situations. Of course there's still one last reckoning to bring this strange journey full circle.

Building on the indescribable energy of VOLUME 1, VOLUME 2 is the best of Greg Sestero and Tommy Wiseau distilled into pure ecstasy: charming, unexpected, dramatic, dark, and above all, endlessly entertaining. With this conclusion, the duo reaffirms their immense popularity, connecting with the audience in ways that most films will never manage.

Starring Tommy Wiseau, Greg Sestero, Kristen StephensonPino
