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.
A woman (Jacobson) learns her brother (Franco) has relapsed on heroin.
