This film will be underrated for lack of drama

This film is so perfect in its simplicity. It does not have the sickness scenes of trainspotting or the sexy stab in the chest of pulp fiction. This is a very real story of one night, there is really minimal drama in the way that it has not been exaggerated for the screen. Abbie Jacobson is incredible, she is torn and loves her brother how most of us would. Dave Franco was great, honestly that was a surprise, he was endearing and normal but something had just gone wrong. It was interesting that you never really understood why this might have happened, there were nods to the overbearing mother, which I felt definitely impacted Abbie's character, but what was not made clear was where the daughters mother was. That little girl was also great, especially in the scene where they go to score. I really found the pharmacy scene uncomfortable and I'm not sure of what recovery support is available in America but in the UK the pharmacy's are desperate to be part of the recovery community so that was hard to see. Watching the impacts of these people life unfold over the night was really uncomfortable but not in a bad way, in the way that we should feel uncomfortable. I really liked the mindfulness narrative, it seemed to fit well.

I thought this film was perfect, I am disappointed with the IMDB rating but this is it a film that glamourises drug use, it's a film about relationships.

Not Perfect - But Raw, Real, And Incredibly Tense

While it wasn't perfect, I can say from the personal experience of having spouse addicted to heroin, that this film honestly and truly captures the emotional horror and torment involved. Again its not perfect, but much of it is incredibly raw, emotional, and truthfully portrays drug addiction and how it affects people involved. The film centers around a woman who discovers her brother has relapsed on heroin, and embarks on a brutal journey to get him to a detox center, while at the same time dealing with her own life. The film perfectly portrays the duality of a person who has an addicted spouse, being emotionally torn between your own life and the spouse you love and want to get better. The tone is extremely thick with turmoil, suspense, and emotional intensity. Portraying a spouse who will literally do anything to help her sick brother. I can say from personal experience that this film gets very many things right, nails them even.

Now, because I'm a adult white man, I was never really the demographic for Broad City, so I never watched it or wanted to. But I found Abby Jacobson's performance to be excellent, a woman torn between her life and her drug addicted brother, feeling in a void between the two. Dave Franco's performance as the drug addict is also authentically played, kudos to him. Some of the dialog between members of the family is pretty average and nothing special but what is special is the dialog and intensity between the brother addict and the sister. Their dialog is many of the things I said to my spouse who was addicted to heroin, as well as the way others talk to the brother and sister, the pharmacy scene hits it right on the nose, very accurate. So all in all I like the film even though not every aspect was perfect, I found it very raw and emotional and would highly recommend it as a watch.

Important take during on a very real issue.

This was not easy or perhaps even enjoyable to watch. But it's rawness and honesty about the opioid epedimic that affects so many young lives in America is what makes it so important and is the reason why everyone should in fact watch it.

Very powerful and captivating performance by both Abbi Jacobson and Dave Franco.
