After Portland slacker John Callahan nearly loses his life in a car accident, the last thing he intends to do is give up drinking. But when he reluctantly enters treatment – with encouragement from his girlfriend and a charismatic sponsor – Callahan discovers a gift for drawing edgy, irreverent newspaper cartoons that develop a national following and grant him a new lease on life.

Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Jonah Hill, Jack Black and Rooney Mara, the film debuts at Sundance later this month and hits U.S. cinemas on May 11, with a UK date to be announced.
