“Jonah Hill and Jack Black are the real revelations in this Joaquin Phoenix tour de force.” – Roger Moore, MOVIE NATION

“Leave it to filmmaker Gus Van Sant to make a film about a hopeless drunk who becomes a quadriplegic into a story that’s funny, dark, sad, sweet and even sort of inspirational.” – Bruce DeMara, TORONTO STAR


Based on a true story, this poignant, insightful and often funny drama explores the healing power of art. Adapted from John Callahan’s autobiography and directed by two-time Oscar® nominee Gus Van Sant, this film shows a man who has a lust for life, a talent for off-colour jokes, and a drinking problem. When an all-night bender ends in a catastrophic car accident, the last thing he intends to do is give up drinking. But when he reluctantly enters treatment – with encouragement from his girlfriend (Rooney Mara) and a charismatic sponsor (Jonah Hill) – Callahan discovers a gift for drawing edgy, irreverent newspaper cartoons that develop an international following and grant him a new lease on life.
