Mark Ruffalo stars and directs his first feature with Sympathy for Delicious, a drama about a crippled DJ (actor/writer Chris Thornton) in modern-day Los Angeles who discovers that he has the power to heal everyone but himself. James Franco co-stars in the Corner Stone Entertainment.

There are few films that I easily give 5 stars from the outset, but "Sympathy for Delicious" is a film that will stick with me for a long, long time. Mark Ruffalo's directorial debut is magical in every sense, and Christopher Thornton's performance (and script) is memorable, touching and ultimately indicative of what happens when karma, human nature, forgiveness and helping others become integrated into one's life.
