Academy Award® winner Hilary Swank (Conviction, Million Dollar Baby) and rapidly rising star Emmy Rossum (Showtime’s Shameless) intertwine in You’re Not You, a surprisingly funny, defiantly unsentimental and starkly moving portrait of a high-stakes friendship between two women – one literally in need of a voice, the other discovering the full power of hers.
Kate (Swank) is a suave, successful classical pianist just diagnosed with ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease).Bec (Rossum) is a brash college student and would-be rock singer who can barely keep her wildly chaotic affairs, romantic and otherwise, together.
Yet, when Bec takes a job assisting Kate, just as Kate’s marriage to Evan (Josh Duhamel) hits the skids, both women come to rely on what becomes an unconventional, sometimes confrontational and fiercely honest bond.
As meticulous, willful Kate begins to rub off on whirlwind, spontaneous Bec – and vice versa – both women find themselves facing down regrets, exploring new territory and expanding their ideas of who they want to be.
Starring alongside Hilary Swank and Emmy Rossom are Josh Duhamel, Marcia Gay Harden, Julian McMahon, Jason Ritter, Frances Fisher, Loretta Devine, Ernie Hudson, Ali Larter, and Andrea Savage.
You’re Not You is directed by George C. Wolf (Nights in Rodanthe) with a screenplay written by Shana Feste (Country Strong, Endless Love) and Jordan Roberts (MArch of the Penguins, Big Hero 6) based on the novel of the same name by Michelle Wildgen.
