Quotes

Rudy King: [after Charlie has attended an important meeting while hung over] I'm not going to mince words, Charlie. We've known each other too long for that. You were a disgrace this morning; I can still smell the liquor on your breath. I don't know how many of those men knew you were hung over, but I certainly did.

Very powerful tool for recovery.
2 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

Like many of you, I saw this movie many many years ago. I was probably 14 or 15 years old when I 'stumbled upon it'. Anyway, my father was an alcoholic and had died just a year or so before. As I watched this movie I saw my father in the role of Charlie Lester. I have never forgotten this movie. I am now 5+ years into my own recovery from alcoholism and would very much like to see it again, or even better, to own a copy of this extremely powerful movie. And like most of you, I cannot hear "Yesterday" (Beatles version only) without seeing Charlie (or my father) standing in front of the mirror watching himself lose the battle. I don't think that I have ever heard a more appropriate song in a movie...even ones written FOR the movie.

If for no other reason, this movie should be released as an educational tool for those who are trying to overcome and deal with this most unrelenting and overpowering disease know as alcoholism.
