So Much So Fast

YOU LOOKIN' AT ME? Heywood faces his fears.
YOU LOOKIN’ AT ME? Heywood faces his fears.

Time Out says

The title of this poignant doc refers to the lives of its two subjects after one is diagnosed with a paralyzing neurological disorder: Stephen Heywood, 29, copes with the onset of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) by proposing to his girlfriend and fathering a son, while his headstrong brother, Jamie, establishes a guerrilla-science foundation to research treatment for the disease, considered not profitable enough for drug companies to invest in a cure. Though Steven Ascher’s narration tends to state the obvious, the film’s candid depiction serves as a sap-free testament to the power of a family’s resilience--and of a $26,000 wheelchair.
