Pure O | Dillon Tucker On Making Narrative Film Based On His Real-Life OCD Battles

Millions of Americans show signs and symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in varying degrees. In the film industry, it’s frequently portrayed in a comedic sense of someone with this mental illness repetitively performing certain habits.

In the narrative film Pure O, Dillon Tucker turned his real-life OCD experiences to tell a story of a man through his own OCD battles and trying to seek help as a result.

Here is the synopsis:

In Pure O, a rehab counselor questions his sanity when he is diagnosed with a crippling form of OCD known as Pure Obsessional. With the help of his friends, a therapy group, and his addiction recovery clients, he discovers the life-affirming power of community in order to fight through the darkest moment of his life.

The film stars Daniel Dorr (20th Century Woman), Hope Lauren (The CW’s The Republic of Sarah), Landry Bender (Best Friends Whenever, Hulu’s Looking For Alaska), and Jeffrey A. Baker.
