Shattered Spirits
22 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you have ever lived with an alcoholic this movie will hit home. It does well at defining and portraying the roles of an alcoholic family. There is the Dependent (Dad), the Codependent (Mom), the Hero (oldest child), the Scapegoat (middle child) and the Lost Child (youngest child). They just needed one more kid to portray the Family Masscot to cover all of the typical roles of an addicted family. I have lived in this type of family and this was painful for me to watch at points because it is realistic. I work in the treatment field, and we have shown this film to clients in group to demonstrate the roles of the alcoholic family.
