"A perceptive portrait of an entire family in revolt against fate."--NEW YORK TIMES

From the directors of the Sundance prizewinner Troublesome Creek (screened at the Wexner Center in March 1997), So Much, So Fast chronicles the inevitable progression of the neural disorder ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) in the life of one young man diagnosed with the disease. Focusing on Stephen Heywood, once described as "a hunky, poet-carpenter guy," the film examines the effect on a person's life when told he may only have a few years to live. Air America calls it "jaw-droppingly good" and "Oscar-worthy" and concludes "You'll be hearing a lot about So Much, So Fast." (87 mins, 35mm)
