Join a father and son on their journey of survival when Weightless arrives on Digital and On Demand December 18 from Lionsgate. The emotional film stars Alessandro Nivola, who Screen Daily says “brings a preternatural stillness” to his role, Julianne Nicholson, and Johnny Knoxville, in an entirely new kind of role for him. Weightless is the story of a challenging quest for belonging and will be available digitally for the suggested retail price of $12.99.
Joel (Alessandro Nivola) lives a solitary existence, rarely straying from his narrow routines of working in a landfill and going through the motions of getting through the day. He faces emotional and psychological upheaval with the arrival of Will, his ten-year-old son whom he has never met. The boy — who has been abandoned by his mother, weighs 250 pounds, and is diabetic — needs serious care and attention, which Joel may not be capable of giving. In spite of their mutual pain and facing an indifferent world, they embark on a journey of survival together.
