A lonely doctor, who once occupied an unusual lakeside house, begins exchanging love letters with its former resident, a frustrated architect. They must try to unravel the mystery behind their extraordinary romance before it's too late.
A depressed woman learns that her husband was killed in a car accident the previous day, then awakens the next morning to find him alive and well at home; then awakens the day after that to find that he's dead.
New York based writer Gwen Cummings knows that she drinks a lot but doesn't believe it's a problem, and if she decides that it is an issue that she could stop drinking on her own. She and her live-in boyfriend Jasper fuel each other's hyperactivity with this excessive alcohol consumption, "a normal life" is not in either's vocabulary. Between Gwen and her older straight-laced sister Lily, Gwen more closely resembles their larger than life mother, who was also an alcoholic and who died because of that when they were children. Lily believes that Gwen's addictions makes her a difficult if not impossible person to love. While Gwen is in a drunken stupor at Lily's wedding, Gwen causes one issue after another, ruining the day for Lily.

I liked it very much because I had a similar experience, so this movie gives me the chance to think about it and about my new life.
What happens in the rehab center match my experience I had in Germany but I must underligne that the change is not so quick as it is showed in the movie. And I'd like to underline that after the therapy in the rehab center one must keep on adopting the new life rules. It is very hard and one must have the courage to want the change but it is worth it. I would like to study the script because I did not understand all the words, in fact I am not English mother tongue. Anyway, this movie is a good help to see what happens to others in the similar situation.
Could anyone suggest me where to find the script on the web?
Thank you in advance
