Storyline

When Sarah, a lonely and deeply troubled woman, inadvertently enters an AA meeting, she is embraced by its members who believe that she too is an alcoholic. What the meeting is all about, she doesn't know... but her motive for going to the community center is to meet face-to-face with Charlie, one of the members who she has seen regularly standing in front of the center adjacent to her window just before what she supposes is some sort of Bible study. She likes the way Charlie moves and the way he smiles. As fate would have it, Sarah and Charlie begin to fall in love. The big question is: Will her continuing attendance at the meeting and her pretense of being an alcoholic weave itself into an entangling web? Will she muster up the courage to tell him, "My name is Sarah, and I'm not an alcoholic," knowing that she may lose him as a result? Written by Anonymous

My name is Sarah,and that's about it.
15 July 2009 | by kissed61See all my reviews

Might be the worst film I have ever seen.No character development,cliché scene heaped upon cliché.The main actor(Jennifer Beale)seemed afraid to both act or be involved in what was a very limited production.The entire cast consisted of the members of an AA group.Avoid this film at all costs,I sat jaw agape about a 1/3 through the film.The viewer is unable to connect,or make an emotional investment in the characters due to not being given any background.I was actually surprised at how easy it was to spot the flaws in this film, but they are stark. I would give this film a zero if it was possible.
