    I thought it was OK - not great, but also not bad. Could easily be a movie-of-the-week for some TV channel, like Hallmark, for example. "Drug is bad, folks!"
  • What a booooooooooring movie

    By MKKK1986
    Oh gosh wasted a whole hour of my life on this movie. It is sooooo booring and when the movie finishes your like " wth" ???? There is no point of this movie . I have no idea why they even produced it..... Worst 1 hour of my life
  • Invest 2 Hours In This Movie

    There is really nothing that can be said about this movie, except the performances are unbelievably good - Julia Roberts does not even stand out among them. The power of a mother's love. The even more powerful attraction of chemical substance. The emotional wreckage of a family history that led them all to this precipice. What an amazing, honest, punch in the face of a story about this substance that is sucking the life out of our kids. Can not recommend it highly enough. Not a date movie, no doubt. But, oh man, does it make you think.

    only someone of Julia Robert's and Lucas Hedge's talent and, more likely, in the case of excellent actors, raw intelligence, could something so.....important-and-real-and cruel, .... make US feel and grasp, --- effectively and immeninantly---, the importantance and realness and cruelty of OPIODS. Thank you.
