A MICHAEL J. FOX MOVIE is a wonderful moving film full of nostalgia and humor — GeekTyrant

I’ve been a fan of Michael J. Fox since I started watching Family ties and then of course when Return to the future was released, my young mind was blown away by all the awesomeness! Fox had an amazing career during the ’80s and ’90s and starred in so many great projects and was a superstar!

As a fan, when I heard that a documentary about his life was being made, I really wanted to see it. That document will be out in the near future and is titled Frame: A Michael J. Fox film. I recently had the opportunity to see it at Sundance and it was fantastic!

In 1998, Fox publicly revealed that he had Parkinson’s disease, seven years after he was diagnosed with the disease in 1991. As you can imagine, this was a huge blow to him. I remember hearing the news and it was the first time he learned the details of what Parkinson’s disease really was.

Fox made an effort to hide his illness from everyone, but it got to the point where he couldn’t hide it anymore. This movie explores when Fox first found out there was a problem and what it was really going through during those seven years. As you can imagine, it was an incredibly difficult time for the actor.

But, the movie also explores Fox’s entire life and his wild and crazy journey to stardom. What it was like for him growing up and how he ended up in Los Angeles to pursue his dream of being an actor.

The synopsis reads: “At 16, an undersized army brat landed a role as a 12-year-old boy on a Canadian TV show. Confident that he could succeed in the US, he moved into a small apartment in the slums of Beverly Hills. Three years later, he was struggling to get by and was ready to retire. But then came breakout roles from him, Alex P. Keaton in the comedy Family Ties and Marty McFly in the Back to the Future trilogy, and a superstar was born. Michael J. Fox dominated the industry for most of the 1980s and 1990s, but a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease at age 29 threatened to derail his career.

It’s a great story and it’s told in an incredibly cool and engaging way! He uses footage from his projects, including behind-the-scenes footage, and mixes it with footage shot for the document. However, Fox tells the whole story in her own words.

It explains: “Fox’s improbable story sounds like something out of Hollywood, so what better way to tell it than through scenes of his own work, complete with stylish re-creations? Master of his own narrative, the actor jokingly recounts his journey with intimacy, frankness and humor. From Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Sundance Film Festival 2006), Still reveals what happens when an eternal optimist is faced with an incurable disease.

The film is an emotional and moving portrait of the life of Fox, but at the same time it is full of humor that will make you laugh and fill you with nostalgia as it takes you back to the 80s and 90s.

I loved this movie and I’m pretty sure anyone who sees it will leave feeling happy and inspired. Coming to Apple TV+
