“The brain has to be relaxed and free to build new pathways.” – Selma Blair

Number of Times Seen – 1 (5 Dec 2021)

Brief Synopsis – Documentary about the struggles of actress Selma Blair after she is diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis.

My Take on it – This was such an enjoyable and informative film due to the way that Selma Blair is able to reveal so much about her life.

The fact that this film gives the viewer so much access to her life and thoughts is refreshing to see and hear about her struggles.

The story is told in a very emotional way, yet is peppered with lots of humorous moments along the way that help to show how she has dealt with all of her hardships over the years.

The film allows the viewer to assess their own life in ways that one might not have thought about due to the fragile way that life is where one day, everything may seem fine, yet in a fraction of an instant that all can change and one must find the courage and perseverance to overcome any kind of obstacles thrown their way.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In October 2018, Blair revealed that she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in August. For years she had thought that she was suffering from minor illnesses, or even a pinched nerve, but the diagnosis finally explained her disabilities, including her occasional falling, dropping things, foggy memory, and her left side “acting like it was asking for directions from a broken GPS.” She was inspired to reveal the news as a way to thank Allisa Swanson, her costume designer, who had become her unofficial “dresser” for her role in the Netflix series Another Life, saying that Swanson “gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, (and) buttons my coats.” (From Wikipedia)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
