| Draining, like a junky
(Really) Great performances by all.

I don't understand the reviews that are saying it's emotionally disconnected or cold; surely this is intentional? There's the person. And there's the junky. And you do become emotionally disengaged when dealing with them or you get sucked into their groundhog day vortex.

This film walks well the fine line that is trying to care for a person within the family with proper substance abuse issues. They're often beautiful. And gifted. Which makes it all the more heartbreaking to see them do what they do. It's the hardest thing to know how to help a junky and perhaps even harder to accept that this is their choice.
