We spent a good deal of the summer dumping ice on our heads to help support the fight against ALS and come October 10th, we’ll get to see what the $115 million raised is aiming to cure in George C. Wolfe’s You’re Not You. Hilary Swank leads as Kate, a poised and successful classical pianist who’s suddenly stricken with ALS. After a lifetime of perfection and independence, Kate has no choice, but to rely on a caregiver, Emmy Rossum’s Bec.
With You’re Not You making its way towards an October 10th theatrical and VOD debut, we’ve got the opportunity to share a brand new featurette for the film. Watching Kate’s flawless existence unravel is especially devastating, but the relationship with Bec that results is as charming and heartwarming as they come. Hit the jump to check it out for yourself in our exclusive You’re Not You featurette.
Here’s the official synopsis of You’re Not You:
Kate (Swank) is a suave, successful classical pianist just diagnosed with ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease). Bec (Rossum) is a brash college student and would-be rock singer who can barely keep her wildly chaotic affairs, romantic and otherwise, together. Yet, when Bec takes a job assisting Kate, just as Kate’s marriage to Evan (Josh Duhamel) hits the skids, both women come to rely on what becomes an unconventional, sometimes confrontational and fiercely honest bond. As meticulous, willful Kate begins to rub off on whirlwind, spontaneous Bec – and vice versa – both women find themselves facing down regrets, exploring new territory and expanding their ideas of who they want to be.
