a film dealing with a daughter addicted to pain medication and her loving mother who is enabling her until....
I found this film hilarious as well as gripping. I was amazed that I laughed so much for such a serious topic as addiction to pain killers. I felt so much empathy for the mother, played by Melissa Leo, and her daughter. And the young environmentalist "love interest" who appears on the scene is so very cute and silly! The mother's job is hilarious and involve among other things putting rings in the nipple of a fat man! The characters are quirky but very true to life in a small town. My friends and I found it all very entertaining and it also made us think about this issue that is gripping our country. The scenery was also beautifully rendered.
