"Valuable...a documentary that has found itself one fascinating subject." — Ken Jaworowski, The New York Times
"This isn't a conventional documentary, but it's a damn adventurous film...It's sweet, sad, and true, and a brilliant film." — John Everhart, Under the Radar
Documentary filmmakers Michael Galinsky and Suki Hawley (BATTLE FOR BROOKLYN) specialize in dramatizing broad social issues through individual personal struggles. Galinsky became the personal focus of his own film when his intensifying back aches motivated him to explore the subject of chronic pain (afflicting over 100 million Americans), the largely ineffectual conventional treatments for it, and the innovative concepts of Dr. John E. Sarno. The on-screen involvement of Galinsky and his family, along with personal testimony by grateful patients including Howard Stern and Larry David, keep the tone breezy while making a serious case for the late Dr. Sarno's ideas on the crucial role of psychological stress and repressed memories in causing (and curing) chronic pain.

Co-director Michael Galinsky is scheduled to appear for audience discussion at both screenings, along with Chicago-based doctor Dr. John Stracks, who practices based on some of Dr. Sarno's ideas.
