Description

More than an icon, Michael J. Fox is a global celebrity who rose to fame in the beloved sitcom Family Ties, starred in the blockbuster Back to the Future trilogy, and smooth talked his way into our hearts on Spin City before shocking the world with his Parkinson’s diagnosis. It could be argued the actor is now more famous for his disease than his performances, something director Davis Guggenheim (Waiting for “Superman”, Festival 2009) is determined to rectify with this uplifting profile of an indomitable spirit. Featuring a treasure trove of clips from Fox’s many roles, this smartly constructed documentary also takes us into Fox’s daily life as he deals with the harsh realities of his illness. Davis thoughtfully balances the unvarnished truth with the explosive charm of a man who must continually redefine success.
