If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to attend a celebrity’s therapy session, Jonah Hill’s new documentary is for you. Hill, who has opened up about her mental health struggles, made a film about her relationship with her therapist, Phil Stutz. “Stutz” will be available on Netflix on November 14.
“How can I make a film about vulnerable people and working on their issues if I’m not vulnerable myself? »
As appealing as it might be to be a fly on the wall in a Hollywood therapist’s office, Hill’s documentary is much more than a behind-the-scenes look at his psychotherapy sessions. The ‘Don’t Look Up’ star, who has opened up about severe anxiety and resulting panic attacks, found life-changing tools that helped him cope with his mental illness. Now he wants to share the privilege of going to therapy with the rest of the world. Specifically, the helpful coping strategies and wisdom that come from her healing relationship with her therapist, Stutz.
“I’m just going to start by acknowledging how weird this effort is, a patient making a movie about their therapist,” Hill said in the trailer. “But my life has improved immeasurably because of my work with [Stutz]. If it worked for me, maybe it will work for other people. »
In the beautifully shot trailer, reminiscent of a black-and-white film, the actor and director asks, “How can I make a film about vulnerable people and working through their issues if I’m not vulnerable myself?” To that, her therapist replies, “You can’t move forward without being vulnerable,” and this intimate feature seems to show Hill’s vulnerability and more.
