PLAYING OCTOBER 02 – 22

OLIVER SACKS: HIS OWN LIFE explores the life and work of the legendary neurologist and storyteller, as he shares intimate details of his battles with drug addiction, homophobia, and a medical establishment that accepted his work only decades after the fact. Sacks was a fearless explorer of unknown mental worlds who helped redefine our understanding of the brain and mind, the diversity of human experience, and our shared humanity. 100% Rotten Tomatoes.
“While the movie steers around the details of how post-fame Sacks became something of a brand, it beautifully presents a portrait of his compassion and bravery.” New York Times
“One of the surprising and moving lessons of this revealing film is how often the most gifted people are unappreciated.” The Hollywood Reporter
