In the superb biopic Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot, Joaquin Phoenix plays alcoholic cartoonist John Callahan, who struggles to stop drinking after a car wreck confines him to a wheelchair. In time, though, he sobers up and gains a devoted following for his often offensive, always clever drawings, in which he regularly lampoons his disability. You’d want to cry for Callahan if he weren’t so damn funny. —J.R. Sullivan

The cast also includes Rooney Mara, Jack Black, and Jonah Hill.
