The Back to the Future star, Michael J. Fox has suffered from Parkinson's from the age 29. Apple TV+ has recently released the trailer for the documentary “Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie'', which is set to premiere on May 12.
“Still” follows Michael J. Fox as he describes his life story, from childhood to becoming a Hollywood star. It also shows how he has struggled with Parkinson throughout the years. Fox is now 61 years old, and he recounts in the trailer that the long sickness has made him a “tough son of a bitch”.
Michael J. Fox recently said in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning that: “I’m not gonna lie, it’s getting harder.” He then added: “It’s getting tougher. Every day gets tougher. But that’s the way it is. I mean, who do I see about that?”.
The actor discussed having undergone spinal surgery on a benign tumor, which has impacted his walking. He later on explained how that had led him to fall numerous times which caused different injuries, such as breaking both arms and facial bones. Fox explained that “falling is a big killer with Parkinson’s. Falling and aspirating food and getting pneumonia – all these subtle ways that get you. You don’t die from Parkinson’s; you die with Parkinson's. So I’ve been thinking of the mortality of it. I’m not going to be 80. I’m not going to 80”.
No matter if you have watched the Back to the Future movies or any other Michael J. Fox movies, this documentary is worth watching. Not only to learn more about what kind of sickness Parkinson actually is, but also to comprehend the difficulties that come with living with such a condition.
