      David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a tedious and hopelessly irrelevant endeavor that overstays its welcome by at least a full hour. Rated: 1/4 Jan 31, 2010 Full Review Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone TheMovieChicks.com It's gritty, raw, emotional, engaging, and very effective. It's impossible to sit through this film and not be moved. A big WOW. Rated: 4.5/5 May 28, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member the raging reality people undertake trying to recoop from the tragedy of losing time and life to addiction is highly depicted in this realistically raw film. Filming was poor quality, but the great acting and story line made it a worthwhile watch! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member A gritty, raw, emotional, engaging, and very effective account of a circle of recovering drug addicts attempting -- and sometimes failing -- to stay sober at an all-male halfway house in L.A. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Similar to watching the TV show "Intervention" Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member i laughed, i cried, then i cried some more... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member a lovely movie ... independent artists if you can get hold of this I would highly recommend you to take time to watch it!
