Experience “one of the best performances of Joaquin Phoenix’s career” (SlashFilm) when the Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot arrives on Digital on October 2 and on Blu-ray (plus Digital) and DVD October 9 from Lionsgate. Directed by two-time Oscar nominee Gus Van Sant (Best Director, Milk, 2008; Good Will Hunting, 1997), and adapted from the autobiography of Portland’s controversial but praised cartoonist John Callahan, the honest and moving comedy follows the true-life story of Callahan’s road to recovery from his addictions through art after becoming a quadriplegic due to a life-changing accident. Academy Award nominee Jonah Hill (Best Supporting Actor, The Wolf of Wall Street, 2013; Moneyball, 2011), Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara (Best Supporting Actress, Carol, 2015; Best Actress, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, 2011), and Golden Globe nominee Jack Black (Best Actor, Bernie, 2011; School of Rock, 2004) give outstanding performances alongside Phoenix. Including two insightful making-of featurettes, the Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix) has a lust for life, a talent for off-color 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. 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. Jack Black, Carrie Brownstein, Beth Ditto, and Kim Gordon also star.
