Fantastic film helps keep on the straight and narrow
7 December 2004 | by (Salem, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is probably my favorite TV movie of all time. Not only does it star my best guy Stephen Lang, but it deals with a subject close to my heart. I was addicted to painkillers (not heroine, thank god) and, although I've been clean for years, watching a movie such as this once in a while, which reminds us of the horrors of drug addiction and withdrawal, keeps me on the right path. Besides that, this movie is well-made, interesting and not your typical "junkie" movie. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in seeing the darker side of what starts out as "fun". Anyone know if this movie can be purchased? I'd like to have a copy other than the one I taped myself. thanks. Kristi
