Show this to your teens!
23 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

If ever there was a film I'd recommend every parent to show their teens, it's this one. That's because it's a very sobering story of a very successful athlete who had a serious drug addiction. He was on top of it all--playing for his hometown team, a lovely wife and some cute kids--but he was willing to throw it all away on a very wide variety of drugs. However, instead of preaching at you about this, the story is mostly told from the player, Chris Herren, himself. Fortunately, he has a few years of sobriety behind him and is now a motivational speaker who spreads the word about the effects of drugs on his life. Very sad but also very satisfying...let's just hope he continues on the path to sobriety. Well made and interesting throughout.
