Synopsis

After a day of drinking, alcoholic John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix) got in his own car, driving by a man with whom he'd been bar hopping. The car smashed into a utility pole at 90 miles an hour, almost killing John. He came out of it alive, but a quadriplegic. 

As John struggles to give up drinking, his support system includes his girlfriend (Rooney Mara) and his zany Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor, Donnie (Jonah Hill). Unable to move, John decides to become a cartoonist after extensive therapy allows him to hold a pen in his right hand. He discovers he has surprising talent, drawing macabre illustrations of everyday life.

Based on the true story of cartoonist John Callahan, and his memoir, Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot.
