I hope the message of this tale helps those who need to hear it.
9 December 2019 | by chicagovesuviSee all my reviews

Aside from the fabrications and embellishments, the core of this story rings true to someone who has known people who have fought (and continue to fight) for their recovery.

This movie was evocatively directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. I give immense kudos to her skills. I was brought to the point of tears more than once. And the movie left me with a feeling of realistic hope.

I'd also like to heap praise on all the cast whose performances made this an honor to experience.
