Books to Movies – Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot – Des Moines Library
June 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
On the rocky path to sobriety after a life-changing accident, John Callahan discovers the healing power of art, willing his injured hands into drawing hilarious, often controversial cartoons, which bring him a new lease on life.
Based on a true story, this poignant, insightful and often funny drama about the healing power of art is adapted from Callahan’s autobiography and directed by two-time Oscar® nominee Gus Van Sant. Rated R.
This is the first in a series of movies based on books as part of the Summer Reading Program. Join us for a book and movie discussion after the movie! The Des Moines Library will have copies of the book to check out.
