Who Needs It? - asthma misrepresentations on film

Movies that portray asthma, inhaler use, and related concepts in inaccurate, stigmatizing, or negative ways.
Most common tropes can include: inhaler overuse, misuse, depiction of symptoms as "fake" or psychosomatic, correlating asthma with weakness, & a character throwing out their inhaler at the end of the film.
