It Is Fine! Everything Is Fine goes into uncharted cinematic territory, with screenwriter Steven C. Stewart starring in this semi-autobiographical, psycho-sexual tale about a man with severe cerebral palsy and a fetish for girls with long hair. Part horror film, part exploitation picture, and part documentary of a man who cannot express his sexuality in the way he desires (due to his physical condition), this fantastical and often humorous tale is told completely from Stewart’s point of view – that of someone who has lived for years watching people do things he will never be able to do. Here, Stewart’s character is something of a lady killer -seducing a troubled, recently divorced mother (Margit Carstensen), her teenage daughter, and any number of other ladies he encounters along the way.
There will be a preview of Crispin’s next directorial feature during the Q&A at this event. This is the first time Crispin and his father Bruce Glover have acted together. Bruce Glover has been in such films as Diamonds Are Forever and Chinatown.
“Glover and Brothers force you to see this crippled person as a suave leading man. To say the film is weird would be cliché. The odd thing about it all – it works. It’s actually refreshing to see someone who actually has cerebral palsy in a film rather than some actor playing someone with cerebral palsy–” – Chris Gore, Film Threat
