A realistic portrayal of addiction
17 September 2018 | by kriistjanmSee all my reviews

As a recovering addict, I think this movie is a realistic portrayal of the slippery slope and desperation that comes with one's journey through addiction.

With such fantastic acting, this is easily the best movie I have seen in a long time. A clear 10/10 for me.
