I just read a review where someone stated that they couldn't see how a mom could go from being good to bad so fast well let me tell you by experience this movie got it right. Drugs can take an upper middle class very well educated loving devoted mother and wife and turn her into a monster over night. I love the fact that this movie shows how addiction affects family and the fact that it was the mom and not the dad who was an addict. In reality a larger number of addict are upper middle class women not men. A must see movie especially for those whom have no idea how addiction changes the user in an instant nor the effects it has on their family and friends. Well done Hill Harper and thank you for this heart achingly wonderful movie... From a 6yr recovering addict
