Does someone have a chronic illness?

Seeing a character who has a chronic illness can be very triggering for people who live with these illnesses and their families. This is often because the way the illness is portrayed in the film is inaccurate.

The „oracle“ of the commune is a boy/man born disabled. You don’t see him much, but when you do he has a distorted face. That’s all.

Pearls father has an unspecified illness which makes him unable to walk and speak. He’s taken care of by his daughter and wife troughout the movie. If this triggers you i suggest skipping the movie because he plays a pretty major role.

Herb Kazazz has cancer. Bojack's mom is shown as generally ill when she got old. Diane struggles with depression throughout multiple seasons. There might be more but those are the ones I remember off the top of my head.

debatable. harlan's medication in the film is said to be for his shoulder injury and to help him sleep. But, Harlan is given said meds through a PICC which would imply a longer-term illness. This is never discussed or brought up in the film however.
