Arnold Schwarzenegger’s wife Maria Shriver recently took to her Instagram account and posted a video clip from Netflix’s ‘Stutz.’
Her caption read:
“I want to highlight this remarkable new film from Jonah Hill, that is now available to watch on Netflix. “Stutz” is a beautiful look at the therapeutic process, as Jonah creates a safe space in front of and behind the camera for us all to learn. Jonah has been very vocal about his mental health and the need to step away from social media, as well as promoting projects in order to put himself first. We can all take that advice, to put ourselves first, to protect our mental health when we need it. And as this beautiful film shows, embrace vulnerability. Embrace letting down our walls. Embrace the need to let go of controlling every aspect, and rather start asking questions, even if you will never know the answer. Bravo, Jonah. Thank you for opening your heart and mind to us all, and sharing your light with us!”
The Netflix documentary Stutz, released on Tuesday, focuses on actor Jonah Hill and his interaction with his psychiatrist, Phil Stutz. Despite the serious theme, the documentary has family moments also; Jonah shared insights about his parents, particularly a sad moment when Jonah, nine at the time, lost his 3-year-old brother.
It has been noted that the script (by Stutz) takes viewers inside psychiatrist Phil Stutz’s office. The story begins with Jonah questioning Phil in a role reversal. Next, he (Jonah) shares issues from his life and problems he cannot overcome with the therapist. Some of the therapeutic techniques, including the visual ones that helped Jonah, are also highlighted in an obvious tribute to the therapist, Phil.
