DON’T WORRY HE WON’T GET FAR ON FOOT - Wednesday 12 December 2018
Directed by Gus Van Sant
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 two-time Oscar nominee Gus Van Sant.
“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 De Mara, Toronto Star
“Joaquin Phoenix and director Gus Van Sant turn a biopic of quadriplegic cartoonist John Callahan into something tender, unique.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“Cartoonist John Callahan is given an appropriately unorthodox remembrance in Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot, an off-kilter biopic about an off-kilter guy.”- Adam Graham, Detroit News
