John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix) has a lust for life, a talent for off-color jokes, and a drinking problem. When an all-night bender ends in a catastrophic car accident, the last thing he intends to do is give up drinking. But when he reluctantly enters treatment — with encouragement from his girlfriend (Rooney Mara) and a charismatic sponsor (Jonah Hill) — Callahan discovers a gift for drawing edgy, irreverent newspaper cartoons that develop an international following and grant him a new lease on life.

"What makes Phoenix’s performance especially exciting is that you’re watching not just a character go from chaos to self-possession but an actor, too. "
- David Edelstein, New York Magazine (Vulture)
"The movie radiates considerable compassion, sensitively addressing issues including addiction, recovery and forgiveness. Joaquin Phoenix’s raw, wiry performance never strives for greatness, which only makes it all the more affecting. "
- Tim Grierson, Screen International
"In a terrific performance that encompasses countless attitudinal, emotional and physical shifts, Joaquin Phoenix eases into the lead role with equal parts raw pain, ironic humor and eventual mellow acceptance."
- David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
"Don't Worry isn't some tearfully inspirational tribute to Callahan's triumph over his disability. It's a tearfully inspirational tribute to his triumph over alcoholism."
- A.A. Dowd, AV Club
"The film sings with creativity and a feel-good '70s vibe and some fantastic dark humor."
- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
"Leave it to filmmaker Gus Van Sant to make a film about a hopeless drunk who becomes a quadriplegic into a story that's funny, dark, sad, sweet and even sort of inspirational."
- Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star
"Joaquin Phoenix and director Gus Van Sant turn a biopic of quadriplegic cartoonist John Callahan into something tender, unique."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A movie about that most essential thing in life: finding your people, even when you don't know who you are yourself."
- Oliver Jones, New York Observer
"Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot is a straightforward biopic about an interesting guy, starring one of our best actors. It’s a story of adversity, self-discovery, and redemption. It’s not the kind of story we’ve never seen, but it’s a perfect showcase for Gus Van Sant’s skill. "
- Vince Mancini, Uproxx
