Trailer For Mark Ruffalo’s Astoundingly-Named ‘Sympathy For Delicious’

The title Sympathy For Delicious made me think Mark Ruffalo‘s directorial debut was a Food Network pilot or a terrible blog written by a fat, 45-year-old woman. It’s neither of those things, in fact.

Ruffalo helms this movie about a DJ who gets paralyzed. Okay. Then the DJ suddenly develops the power to heal people, but not himself. Uhm… okay? And did I mention the movie’s called Sympathy For Delicious? It’s hard to get over the plot and name to see the great cast in this trailer, which includes Orlando Bloom (as a character named “The Stain,” ho boy), Laura Linney, Juliette Lewis and some guy named Mark Ruffalo. Who’d he have to blow to get a lead role?

Written by and starring Christopher Thornton as DJ Delicious (repeat “blow” joke here, too – thank you), Sympathy For Delicious premiered at Sundance in January.
