Following a long fascination with the religion and with much experience dealing with eccentric behaviour, Louis Theroux delves into the murky world of Scientology.

★★★★ “… gloriously funny” – Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph

‘I find that the most inexplicable behaviour is motivated by very relatable human impulses,’ – Louis Theroux

Inspired by the Church’s famed use of filming techniques, and aided by ex-members of the organisation, Theroux uses actors to replay some incidents people claim they experienced as members in an attempt to better understand the way it operates. In a bizarre twist, it becomes clear that the Church is also making a film about Louis Theroux.

Suffused with a good dose of humour and moments worthy of a Hollywood script, My Scientology Movie is stranger than fiction.
