    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. Jack Black, Carrie Brownstein, Beth Ditto and Kim Gordon also star.
    Cast includes: Joaquin Phoenix, Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara and Jack Black

    Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) - IMDb

    As someone familiar with 12-step principles and processes, I took extra interest in this movie. Based on some of the graphic scenes and profanity, I assume the AA Trustees did not sanction the movie as Conference Approved.

    I thought the movie conveyed a message of hope.
