Storyline

In this modern day drama, Oscar-winner Melissa Leo beautifully conveys the heart-wrenching struggle that comes with love and addiction, while also lightheartedly depicting a woman rediscovering romance. She plays hopelessly hopeful Faye, mother to Sylvie (Marin Ireland) who, many months after a car accident, continues to complain of back pain. After refusing physical therapy, it becomes clear to everyone but Faye that her daughter is addicted to pain killers. When earnest environmentalist Beckett (Josh Hamilton) moves to town, Faye quickly befriends him, hoping that he will be the solution to Sylvie's problems. As Beckett finds himself further intertwined in their lives, he inadvertently helps Faye realize the depth of her family's problem, even as he brings a touch of happiness. Before too long Faye's hand is forced, and she must decide whether to protect her daughter or find the happiness that she has long denied herself. Written by Anonymous

a film dealing with a daughter addicted to pain medication and her loving mother who is enabling her until....
7 March 2014 | by katime42See all my reviews

I found this film hilarious as well as gripping. I was amazed that I laughed so much for such a serious topic as addiction to pain killers. I felt so much empathy for the mother, played by Melissa Leo, and her daughter. And the young environmentalist "love interest" who appears on the scene is so very cute and silly! The mother's job is hilarious and involve among other things putting rings in the nipple of a fat man! The characters are quirky but very true to life in a small town. My friends and I found it all very entertaining and it also made us think about this issue that is gripping our country. The scenery was also beautifully rendered.
