Doc10's Opening Night Premiere, Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie. Post-screening Q&A with Oscar award-winning Director Davis Guggenheim.
In this captivating portrait of irrepressible actor Michael J. Fox, the star of Family Ties and Back to the Future tells his own nearly improbable tale: of an undersized Canadian kid with big dreams who rose to the heights of stardom in 1980s Hollywood—only to be diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 29. Through intimate and witty conversations, stylish reenactments, and brilliantly edited clips from his memorable career, STILL chronicles Fox’s personal and professional triumphs and travails, revealing what happens when an incurable optimist confronts an incurable disease. With “undeniable emotional power coursing through every frame” (RogerEbert.com), this ”upbeat” “crowd-pleaser” (Variety) from the Oscar-winning director of An Inconvenient Truth and Waiting for "Superman” offers an “uplifting message of the power of perseverance, hope, and humor in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds” (EW).
