GET BETTER is a handmade feature film about a week in the life of Ellie and Roy Alexander—daughter and chronically ill father.
“I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable.” - Joseph Addison
GET BETTER was written and directed by personal filmmakers, Chris and Emily White. It was made entirely with cash and in-kind contributions from friends and family.
GET BETTER stars Marisa Viola as "Ellie," Robert Linder as "Roy," Monica Wyche as "Stu," Chris White as "Mike," and Lise Anzelone as "Jane." Cinematography by Alan Ray. Edited by Jeter Rhodes.
