Apple TV+ has released a trailer for ‘STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie’, a film which incorporates documentary, archival and scripted elements, and recounts Fox’s extraordinary story in his own words.
Starring Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan, directed by Academy Award winner, Davis Guggenheim, the movie tells the improbable tale of an undersized kid from a Canadian army base who rose to the heights of stardom in 1980s Hollywood. The account of Fox’s public life, full of nostalgic thrills and cinematic gloss, unspools alongside his never-before-seen private journey, including the years that followed his diagnosis, at 29, with Parkinson’s disease.
Intimate and honest, and produced with unprecedented access to Fox and his family, the film chronicles Fox’s personal and professional triumphs and travails, and explores what happens when an incurable optimist confronts an incurable disease. With a mix of adventure and romance, comedy and drama, watching the film feels like … well, like a Michael J. Fox movie.
‘STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie’ is produced by Concordia Studio. Guggenheim, Annetta Marion, Will Cohen and Jonathan King serve as producers, with Laurene Powell Jobs, Jonathan Silberberg, Nicole Stott and Fox’s longtime producing partner Nelle Fortenberry executive producing. The project marks the second partnership for Apple and Concordia Studio following the Emmy Award-winning documentary ‘Boys State’.
‘STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie’ premieres Friday, 12th May 2023 on Apple TV+ globally.
