The Road Within
December 1, 2015
The Friends screened The Road Within, the story of a young man with Tourette’s Syndrome, who just lost his mother. Aided by a rebellious anorexic and a withdrawn OCD roomate, the three embark on a life-changing race to the sea that includes car theft, shiplifing, fights, self-discovery, and maybe finding a new way to live. The film starred Robert Sheehan, Dev Patel, Zoe Kravitz, Kyra Sedgwick, and Robert Patrick. The director of The Road Within, Gren Wells and producer, Michael Helfant joined Semel Institute doctors, Andrew Leuchter, MD, Jamie Feusner, MD, John Piacentini, PhD, and Michael Strober, PhD, in post-screening discussion.
