When a drifter (Sestero) is taken in by a peculiar mortician (Wiseau), the two hatch an underground enterprise off the back of the mortician’s old habits. But greed, hatred and jealousy soon come in turn, and their efforts unravel, causing the drifter to run off with the spoils and leaving the mortician adrift. An expedition across the Southwest introduces wild and crazy characters through a series of twisted and dark foibles as both men learn a valuable lesson about friendship and loyalty.

“When we unveiled the ‘Best F(r)iends‘ trailer at our cinema screenings of ‘Tommy Wiseau’s The Room’ in January, fan response was overwhelming,” said Fathom Events VP of Programming Kymberli Frueh. “This spring, we are excited to bring this reunion of friends to fans of Wiseau and ‘The Room’ everywhere.”

Best F(r)iends” also stars Paul Scheer (“the League,” “Human Giant,” “Veep”) and features a musical score created by Daniel Platzman of Imagine Dragons.
