The completed film is premiering at Sundance this week. If anyone out there has seen it yet, let us know what you thought (good or bad). Does it deserve to be picked up?
This movie follows a jaded DJ paraplegic who mysteriously wakes up with the gift to heal others, but discovers he still can’t heal himself. “Sympathy for Delicious” also stars Orlando Bloom and Juliette Lewis, and was written by Christopher Thornton, the film’s star.
It has a cool back story too. Thornton and Ruffalo are old acting school buddies from before Thornton’s injury (a rock climbing accident) in 1992. This script was a longtime coming too (an idea Thornton had while wheeling to the liquor store).
