Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot
After Portland slacker John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix) nearly loses his life in a 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 a national following and grant him a new lease on life.
Based on a true story, this poignant, insightful and often funny drama about the healing power of art is adapted from Callahan's autobiography and directed by twotime Oscar nominee Gus Van Sant.
Joaquin Phoenix driving this heart breaking story gives the audience such a true sense of the unbearable.
The will to overcome the tragedy that had changed his life and the study of the true problem he faces is remarkable.
All of the people that play into his recovery give him the faith and the strength he needs in order to better himself.
