About the Film

A Special Jury Award winner from this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Nuts! tells the curious tale of eccentric John Romulus Brinkley, an early 20th century physician who made a fortune curing men of impotence using goat testicles, built the world's most powerful radio station, invented junk mail, and nearly became the governor of Kansas. Smartly using unconventional narration and different styles of animation to bring Brinkley’s bestselling autobiography to life, director Penny Lane (Our Nixon, NFF 2013) overturns documentary conventions in ever-surprising and inventive ways in this whimsical, funny, and ultimately subversive story that’s almost too good to be true.
