Selma Blair Shares Intimate Look At Her Life And Struggle With MS In Intimate New Documentary

Selma Blair shares her struggles in and out of the hospital with multiple sclerosis in her upcoming documentary.

One of the most bone chilling lines from Selma’s doc is ” I was told to make plans for dying.” Now, Selma Blair is the subject of “Introducing, Selma Blair,” a discovery+ documentary focusing on how she’s been coping and living with the disease. On Thursday, the platform tweeted a trailer for the forthcoming film, which will be released in both theaters and on streaming, calling it “a deeply intimate and powerful feature of Selma Blair in her journey of personal acceptance and resilience through her fight with Multiple Sclerosis.”

Director Rachel Fleit’s deeply intimate and powerful feature of one woman’s journey of personal acceptance and resilience, Introducing, Selma Blair, follows the singular actress as she reckons with the next chapter of her life after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. The film explores complex issues ranging from dissecting deep-rooted myths about beauty, and the collective fear around disability and mortality. Complete with her trademark wit and humor, the film follows Blair as she reconciles a journey of monumental transition. In theaters October 15 and streaming October 21 on discovery+.
