Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot is a 2018 American comedy-drama film based on cartoonist John Callahan’s autobiography of the same name. Gus Van Sant wrote the screen adaptation and directed the film. The cast includes Joaquin Phoenix, Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara, and Jack Black. This biopic of Portland cartoonist  John Callahan  is a poignant, insightful and often funny drama about redemption, forgiveness and the healing power of art.

Portland slacker John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix) nearly loses his life in a car crash, and wakes up in a hospital, confined in a wheelchair with only partial use of his arms. Though he initially does not intend to give up drinking, he reluctantly enters treatment, with encouragement from his girlfriend  Annu (Rooney Mara) and a charismatic AA sponsor named Donnie (Jonah Hill).  With their help, Callahan  discovers a hidden talent for edgy, irreverent – and often hilarious – newspaper cartoons that develop an international following and grant him a new lease on life.
