STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie — Official Trailer | Apple TV+

 

Michael J. Fox's perennial youth and kinetic screen presence made him one of the most sought-out actors of the eighties and nineties. Starring in the hit sitcom Family Ties during the day while doing nights on the set of Back to the Future, even early in his career, Fox commanded top billing on both the small and large screen. But all that work came at a price, and, when Fox was later diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, his stardom led him into a cycle of shame and deception. Davis Guggenheim's (An Inconvenient Truth) intimate portrait of Fox, as he comes to terms with his disease and reflects on his storied career, is an engrossing look at perseverance, wisdom and humor in the face of adversity. Blending interviews, archival footage and clever recreations, STILL is a true revelation of the man behind the persona—charming, witty, unflappable and humble. He's fallen down a lot, but Michael J. Fox is still getting back up.
