Nothing is closer to the truth
3 February 1999 | by (Ellensburg, WA) – See all my reviews

When you have an alcoholic in your family, its not easy to deal with it. Especially when he or she denies that they have a problem. Shattered Spirits is an amazing film, with Martin Sheen giving the most believable performance in the history of motion pictures. If I ever would meet Mr. Sheen, I would congratulate him for bringing the reality of being an alcoholic to the screen and making families face the truth when alcoholism is in the family. Thankyou Martin Sheen.
