I really enjoyed this film and I agree with the reviewer who said that you can't just put in plot twists for the sake of it. The issue of addiction and its destructive power was dealt with very well and to overplay it or make it more 'sensational' would devalue the issues that were raised within the film.
It was interesting to see an addiction like this from a female point of view for a change, and it was good to see a woman with a life like an advert descend into an addiction that could undo all the work she had put in to having a life that we all supposedly dream of (marriage, 2.4 kids, beautiful house, great career, plenty of money). And in this day and age of product placement, do we really care that they drove Audi cars?
