Louis Theroux: My Scientology Movie (2016)
Wednesday 23rd November 2016
Incomparable British broadcaster Louis Theroux is hilariously provocative in his first feature documentary, Louis Theroux: My Scientology Movie, created in collaboration with director John Dower and two-time Academy Award® winning producer Simon Chinn (Searching for Sugar Man, Man on Wire).
Following a long fascination with the religion, and with a lot of experience dealing with eccentric human behaviour, Theroux won't take no for an answer when his request to enter the Church of Scientology's Los Angeles headquarters is turned down. Theroux's insatiable curiosity motivates him to understand what life inside the Church is really like, and with the aid of former second-in-command at the Church, Mark 'Marty' Rathbun, he uses actors to replay incidents people claim they experienced with high profile members such as Tom Cruise and leader David Miscavige.
Suffused with a good dose of humour and moments worthy of a Hollywood script, Louis Theroux: My Scientology Movie, released on DVD by Altitude Film Distrbution on 28th November 2016, proves that what people do in the name of religion can be truly stranger than fiction.
