Sneak Preview followed by a Q&A with Gus Van Sant.
Van Sant, a longtime Portlander and steadfast Northwest regionalist, sets out in his latest to tell the story of a local legend, the late quadriplegic cartoonist John Callahan, whose memoir was originally brought to the director’s attention by Robin Williams. Joaquin Phoenix, cementing his status as his generation’s greatest actor and shapeshifter, plays the hell-raising, provocatively un-P.C. Callahan, a wheelchair-bound speed demon clawing his way out of the hell of alcoholism with the help of life coach and sponsor Donny—an unrecognizable and exceptional Jonah Hill. A return to the tender, intimate filmmaking of Good Will Hunting, and an exciting new chapter in the open-ended, ongoing adventure of Van Sant’s career.
