The Room is a independent film written, directed by, and starring Tommy Wiseau. It had a limited release in 2003.

Plot

Johnny and his fiancee, Lisa are living together in San Francisco. Johnny's best friend, Mark, is having an affair with Lisa behind Johnny's back because Lisa finds Johnny boring. Meanwhile, Lisa's mother has been diagnosed with breast cancer, Johnny acquires a top secret client at his bank job whose identity he's sworn to protect, and Johnny's other friend, Gerald, diagnosis Lisa as a sociopath, prompting Mark to almost throw him off a roof. The affair is exposed at Johnny's birthday party. The events lead Johnny to commit suicide, causing Lisa and Mark agony over what they have done.

Analysis

The film is a moral lesson on the dangers of living in sin and adultery. Had Lisa and Johnny not lived together, Lisa would have never been bored with Johnny until after they were married. Had Mark not had an adulterous relationship with Lisa behind Johnny's back, Johnny would not have committed suicide. The film underlines how your selfish actions can hurt others more than you realize.

Legacy

The film is still occasionally screened at midnight in California. Many bring their families, especially young children, as an introduction/reinforcement of Christian family values. The film is enjoyed all the same by non-Christians as well.
