Trailer:

John Callahan has a drinking problem.  After one all day and all night bender he is involved in a catastrophic car accident that leaves him quadriplegic.  But he doesn’t want to stop drinking, not yet.  Gus Van Sant’s effervescent bio-pic takes you on John’s journey to sobriety, through recover and relapse and towards understanding and self-acceptance.  This gem of a film has a narrative punctuated with Callaghan’s irreverent cartoons, black humour, an unconventional timeline and a cast of quirky cohorts.  A joyful and unconventional celebration of the recovery process and of life and all its glorious challenges.
