Behind the Scenes: The Hollywood Film

Randy MacLowryI felt that the Hollywood film did a wonderful job of capturing the essence of his story. They really did a very nice job in terms of dealing with the mental illness and the struggles that he and his family went through. And how devastating the illness is, to not only the individual but also the loved ones around him, and his recovery.

Our documentary will be a real complement to the Hollywood film. They obviously made choices with a certain storytelling device that utilized certain fictionalizations of Dr. Nash's story, but within their story line, I think they did a really admirable job at telling his story.
