Anne Hathaway showed her support during a recent evening with The Bachmann-Strauss Dystonia & Parkinson Foundation where she addressed her role as a Parkinson’s patient in her new film “Love & Other Drugs.” The Bachmann-Strauss Foundation invited their generous supporters to join Anne Hathaway over an intimate dinner at Il Postino, followed by a screening of her movie at The Japan Society. Anne introduced the film by speaking about her experience playing the character of Maggie, the importance of bringing awareness to both Parkinson’s disease and dystonia and how proud she is to be involved with The Bachmann-Strauss Dystonia & Parkinson Foundation. The Foundation can not thank Anne enough for making priceless experience happen.

ABOUT THE FILM:
In this emotional comedy, Anne Hathaway portrays Maggie, an alluring free spirit who won’t let anything, including a formidable personal challenge, tie her down. But she meets her match in Jamie (Jake Gyllenhaal), whose relentless and nearly infallible charm serve him well with women and in the cutthroat world of pharmaceutical sales. Maggie and Jamie’s evolving relationship takes them both by surprise, as they find themselves under the influence of the ultimate drug: love. Most relationships proceed from love to sex. This one goes the opposite direction and thus makes an unexpected film from an unconventional love story.
