Thirty years before the antics of Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears were regular gossip fodder, Miss Wyoming Joyce McKinney made her mark as a tabloid staple ne plus ultra. Director Errol Morris follows the salacious adventures of this beauty queen with an IQ of 168 whose single-minded devotion to the man of her dreams leads her across the globe, into jail, and onto the front page.

Joyce's labyrinthine crusade for love takes her through a surreal world of kidnapping, manacled Mormons, risque photography, magic underwear, and celestial sex-until her dream is finally realized in a cloning laboratory in Seoul, South Korea.

By turns funny, strange, and disturbing, TABLOID is a vivid portrayal of a phenomenally driven woman whose romantic obsessions and delusions catapult her over the edge into scandal sheet notoriety and an unimaginable life.
