Storyline

Theo Fleury was an NHL star. He played for the Calgary Flames, New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks. He made 50 million dollars and threw it away on drugs, alcohol and gambling. He reached bottom, and bought a gun intending to kill himself. At the last minute he changed his mind. He wrote a book revealing that, as a teen, he'd been sexually abused by his coach. It created a firestorm of publicity and went on to become a No. 1 bestseller in Canada. Theo starred in a top-rated skating competition reality show and had a cameo in the opening film at TIFF last year. Inspired by the book, the documentary follows Theo's struggle with the aftermath of the book and gives his turmoil a voice. Written by Anonymous

When Theo Fleury viewed Theo Fleury: Playing With Fire, the documentary made about his life, he tweeted, "Move over @Oprah ... It was awesome. See you at the Oscars." The film continues to impress. It won the Garden State Film Festival Award for Cinematography for best overall looking film in the festival. I was there and heard Producer/Director Larry Day speak. His wife, Kirstie McLellan Day wrote the Fleury book on which it was based. The book and a play she wrote brought Fleury back from obscurity and bankruptcy to a new career and new respect. She also wrote with Bob Probert and Ron MacLean. The film is just incredible. Shows the man as who he really is: hilarious, contradictory, mercurial, angry, mean, kind, dumb, brilliant, shallow, deep, greedy and generous. Scene by scene you never know which Theo is going to show up. What a ride. Globe and Mail wrote a great piece on it.
