[Jennifer] Brea builds up a multifaceted portrait of the condition and the toll it takes.
It's a film that's remarkably intimate, deeply edifying and a stirring call to action.
Director Jennifer Brea has ME herself, and she structures the film around footage from her own video diaries; these excerpts personalize the medical lesson and give the film an emotional core.
This is jaw-dropping stuff, made more profoundly disturbing by the fact that so little is known about the disease.
It powerfully insists on giving a voice to victims whose greatest challenge, apart from their symptoms, is surmounting a world of indifference.
The movie delivers a striking degree of emotional authenticity with its home footage, allowing it to become more about its central couple's resilience than the hardships that tests their bond.
The mix between education and experience is perfectly balanced with each subject bringing something new to the table as far as issues, hope, or despair.
Unrest is a documentary all about making audiences understand an illness defined by internal pain, and on that front it's an unquestionably successful if not sad film.
A brave, intimate and emotionally affecting documentary.
Unrest is an unflinching look at a disease that overwhelms both the stricken and the medical community. Brea gives viewers a first-person look at the harsh realities of CFS.
With Unrest, Brea has crafted film that will no doubt improve awareness, outreach, and support for many people whose visibility and voices have been too dim for too long.
The result is a poignant profile of a woman who will not go gentle into that good night of rage against the dying light.
