On Saturday, I had a "day off". No plans, no people, just whatever I feel like doing.

After playing some poi in the park, I got hungry. On my way to my favorite Falafel place, I passed by the local small indie-cinema and saw there is a movie with Jonah Hill and Jack Black in 45 minutes. "Why not?" I though and got a ticket, without knowing what the movie is about.

I was sitting in the cinema, waiting for the advertisements to start, when I saw your post on Hubski. I read it and the comments below.

The movie started. "Showtimes for Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot", the story of John Callahan. A disabled cartoonist who wrote an autobiography about his alcoholism, and his journey through AA. I loved the movie.

They didn't talk about the past/history of AA. But mentioned the 12 steps. I found it very interesting.

Maybe you will also enjoy it! Thank you for writing/sharing :)
