Truth is stranger than fiction
19 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

Martin Sheen brings his own personal experience with family alcoholism into this story. I have used this film many times in my outpatient substance abuse treatment group therapy sessions to "trigger" processing and to bring folks out of their own denial about alcoholism. I have used many other resources in the past six years but this movie is the unanimous first choice among my clients for impacting their recovery decisions! Sometimes difficult to watch, especially the family violence, but truth is often difficult to watch!
