| Excellent Representation of the Dysfunctional, Alcoholic Family
I feel that this movie was one of the best I've seen which illustrates the dysfunctional alcoholic Family. It clearly showed all of the family roles which typically can exist in that setting. (Dependent, Enabler, Hero, Scapegoat, Lost Child and Mascot). I believe that this is a must to see for any alcoholic, family member of an alcoholic family and even any member of a dysfuntional family which my not involve alcoholism.
