Some backstory is probably required. Now the subject of The Disaster Artist, James Franco’s latest film, The Room is a cult classic ‘disasterpiece’ written, produced, directed by and starring Tommy Wiseau, and widely regarded as one of the worst films ever made.
The EU is a story of our life and times as, perhaps, might be imagined by Tommy Wiseau.
The UK: entrepreneurial, but with mixed fortunes, specialising in banking
Brussels: devious, untrustworthy bitch
Jaycee Juncker: Brussels’ mother
Germany: friend of the UK, a psychologist
Eastern Europe: Young, mixed-up kid, means well
France: the UK’s best “friend”
All of the drama is set within the EU. Various characters flit in and out, often for no reason, but nobody ends up going anywhere. (Perhaps tellingly, we are never shown what is outside the EU.)
