There is a certain honesty to this film as I have seen several loved ones who have went through the nastiness of addiction. Annika Marks’ performance was beautiful. She was so committed to this part that at times in the film you had to ask yourself whether or not this was coming from a real experience. Sharon Lawrence brought a maturity to this film that complemented Annika’s character and her nativity. The film was beautifully shot and really brought out the atmosphere of a small beach town in Central Florida.
Movie Quality: 9/10

Final Thoughts

Loved this film. A tender and passionate depiction of a painful and difficult subject. Annika Marks gives and soulful and moving performance that tugs at your heart. People dealing with addiction themselves, or with a loved one will relate to the characters struggles, and perhaps find a sense of hope along the way.
Overall Rating: 9/10
