Resilience & Perseverance: The Ongoing Story of Actor Michael J. Fox

"The film, which will incorporate documentary, archival and scripted elements, will recount Fox’s extraordinary story in his own words — the improbable tale of an undersized kid from a Canadian army base who rose to the heights of stardom in 1980s Hollywood. The account of Fox’s public life, full of nostalgic thrills and cinematic gloss, will unspool alongside his never-before-seen private journey, including the years that followed his diagnosis, at 29, with Parkinson’s disease. Intimate and honest, and produced with unprecedented access to Fox and his family, the film will chronicle Fox’s personal and professional triumphs and travails and will explore what happens when an incurable optimist confronts an incurable disease. With a mix of adventure and romance, comedy and drama, watching the film will feel like … well, like a Michael J. Fox movie.' from video introduction

Included in the trailer are emotional recollections of the moment Fox first discovered Parkinson's disease symptoms in his finger at the height of his fame.

"I woke up and I noticed my pinky auto-animated. Parkinson's disease," the 61-year-old recalls in the clip above. "I told [my wife] Tracy the news. 'In sickness and in health,' I remember her whispering. No one outside of my family knew.".." from the article:
