Gleason – based on the touching true story of New Orleans Saints star defensive, Steve Gleason.
At the young age of 34, the New Orleans football star Gleason was diagnosed with the incurable disease ALS, which left him struggling to control his body and his muscles. During the time of discovering the awful news, his wife Michel was also pregnant with their first child.
But the discovery of his illness didn’t slow Steve down, it made him even more determined to live his remaining years to its fullest. He takes his ideas into action, going on an expedition to Alaska, creating a foundation to help other ALS patients, repairs a rocky relationship with his father and embraces new technologies to help compensate for his deteriorating physical abilities — all with Michel’s unwavering support.
Gleason is out in UK cinemas on 17th March 2017.
