AUTHOR: THE JT LEROY STORY is a documentary about the writer Laura Arnold, the creator of the literary persona JT LeRoy.

Theme

There are references to child sexual abuse, some of which relate to fictional characters. Laura Arnold, however, does recall herself being 'touched' by a family friend when she was a young child.

Language

There is a single use of very strong language ('c**t'), as well as frequent strong language ('f**k').

Sex

Strong sex references include the dialogue line, "I'm sucking your cock good. You wanna come in my mouth?". This occurs in an audio portrayal of a phone sex transaction.

There are some drug references, including the sound of a woman snorting cocaine on the other end of a telephone line, and brief blood spurts in short clips from films.
