New York Times Reviews Unrest

Unrest has made it to the big times - the New York Times has reviewed it. It's wasn't Manohla Dargas and the review is short but its mostly positive - a good sign for the biggest and most influential media outlet in the country.

Mainly, though, “Unrest” is a video diary and, as such, is not always easy to watch. Ms. Brea bravely spares very little in showing how the disease literally leveled her life — at times leaving her crawling the floor — and strained her marriage. The film is also not vested in an upbeat ending. Rather, it powerfully insists on giving a voice to victims whose greatest challenge, apart from their symptoms, is surmounting a world of indifference.

Agreed. My daughter in Halifax will be very disappointed that she can't see the virtual screening. She quite reasonably doesn't want to encourage people to see 'Unrest' until she's seen it herself, but is eager to raise awareness.

I get that, I am working on getting Unrest into theaters relatively local to me, would be nice to see it 1st, but 1 place is already interested just from talking to me and viewing the trailer!

ME Action sent an email this morning:

"The Time for Unrest has come to New York!

If you can't make it to the theaters to see UNREST at the IFC in New York City this weekend, you can see it right from your bed!

We have created two virtual screenings for those unable to physically come to a screening. We have a limited number of virtual seats, so please only purchase a virtual ticket if you have ME, other chronic illness, a disability, or caregiving tasks that prevent you from traveling to the theater.

You can easily watch from your tablet, phone, or hook up to your TV!
Get virtual tickets here: http://see.unrest.film/showtimes/

Note: You will need to change the screening search criteria from "community, theatrical and festivals" to "virtual screenings" in the drop down menu.

There is limited space so tickets are first come, first served! So buy now!"
