Preview: Van Sant’s latest is a True Piece of Portland History — “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot”

Long before “Portlandia,” Gus Van Sant was the chronicler of quirky Hipsville’s underbelly, and his latest takes him back there for the true story of a quadreplegic/alcoholic cartoonist. Joaquin Phoenix plays John Callahan, drunk and trapped in a wheelchair, who finds sobriety and purpose thanks to a support network that includes Jonah Hill (almost unrecognizable), Jack Black and girlfriend Rooney Mara.

“Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot”“Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot” is an Amazon Studios release and opens in May.
