WATCH THE TRAILER FOR DIMINISHED CAPACITY AFTER THE JUMP

Diminished Capacity stars Matthew Broderick, Virginia Madsen, and Alan Alda.  It’s about an asexual, middle-class schlub who’s worried he might be losing his mind, because that’s what all independent movies are about.  Alda plays Broderick’s Alzheimer’s-suffering uncle, Madsen his old girlfriend.  At some point, they all have an adventure centering around a valuable baseball card.  The interesting thing about Alzheimer’s Disease is that it’s always funny in movies, but rarely in real life.  Sort of the opposite of burn victims in that way.

In limited release July 4th.
