Storyline

Texan small town high school buddies Chris, Owen Turner and Samantha 'Sam' Campbell were inconspicuous, bored and feeling blasé about anti-drug campaigns, so they 'experiment'. After OD'ed Sam's dad gets her to detox, she grows closer to gentle Chris, who follows suit, and the pair takes distances from her cocky ex Owen, who gets drawn into the drug scene. Even their friend Brad's OD-death can't get Owen back on track. A knee-injury as track athlete tempts Chris to try Owen's heroin, and fatally switch sides, stupidly followed by Sam. And dealer Kurt's gang shows penniless 'client' kids no mercy. Written by KGF Vissers

Addiction vs. Sobriety
24 March 2002 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I wanted to see this movie to get a corny glimpse of MTV getting hypocritical about drug use, because these days much music (hip-hop especially) is blatantly pro-marijuana. What it turned out to be was an enthralling look at a group of friends battling with heroin addiction. Summer Phoenix was very believable as a recovering addict and the rest of the cast did very well in their roles. I saw a bit of 'Requiem for a Dream' in this, but maybe that's ineveitable in an anti-drug movie. I didn't love or hate this movie, but it kept me with my eyes glued to the screen for the full run of it. It was an emotionally powerful movie, indeed.
