Mark Ruffalo Explains Why He Chose To Direct 'Sympathy For Delicious' (Video)
Dean O'Dwyer (Thornton) DJs in L.A. using stage name Delicious D. He' on the verge of stardom when a motorcycle accident leaves him completely paralyzed, and his dreams go up in smoke. Subsequently sinking into a deep depression while living out of his car on Skid Row, Dean takes the plunge into the world of faith healing following a chance encounter with Father Joe Roselli (Ruffalo).
In what can only be described as a miracle, Dean soon learns that he possesses a healing touch. Strangely, despite this power, Dean still remains bound to his wheelchair -- a prisoner in his own body. Furious, Dean rejects religion in favor of fame, and instead uses his newfound power to make a fortune in a volatile rock band fronted by The Stain (Bloom).
