"Barbed Wire" was an awakening film to take a look at life and the relationships that you are in and trying to help people overcome their addictions and shortcomings in life. Staying with that person through thick and thin has a tremendous strain on the person supporting the other but, somehow a good prevails in human struggle. Excellent story telling. Riveting film that takes you on a roller-coaster ride about life and its struggle. Drug addiction is a powerful thing to overcome. These characters tell their story with such conviction and realism. This piece should be a template for drug addiction centers worldwide to help emphasize how a chemical can completely hold and destroy a person without help. Overcoming a chemical dependence is such a challenge and is literally a day-to-day struggle with that demon. You hear constantly of everyday people as well as celebrities losing their battle with drugs and alcoholism. They continue to backslide after many, many years of freedom from their enslavement to the drug or substance. This just shows how powerful an entity it is. "Barbed Wire" sets you up to demonstrate how strong an addiction is and puts it right in your face. There is no hiding the truth.
