GLEASON is a documentary about the former NFL player, Steve Gleason, as he battles with the debilitating effects of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Language

The strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker') is spoken largely during moments of stress but never aimed at another person.

There are some scenes of emotional distress as Gleason struggles to deal with the physical effects of his disease and, in one scene, likens some of his treatment to a sexual act.
