US Theatrical Trailer for WHY STOP NOW with Jesse Eisenberg

Starring Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Oscar winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter), and Tracy Morgan, “WHY STOP NOW” marks co-director Phil Doring’s feature debut, basing the film on his own 2008 short film titled “Predisposed”. Co-writing and -directing with Ron Nyswaner (Philadelphia), the film made its debut at Sundance Film Festival back in January.

It is a bittersweet story of Eli Smith (Eisenberg), a piano prodigy, and his mother Penny (Leo) who despite her cheerful, loving disposition, struggles with drug addiction. On the day of his audition for a prestigious music program, Eli’s mother plans to enter rehab, but a glitch in the system forces them to enlist the help of an unlikely ally, her drug dealer Sprinkles (Morgan). Circumstances conspire that turn them into a comical yet determined band of collaborators who are forced to deal with their internal demons over the course of the day.
