A Realistic Look at a Social ProblemBy Bluesman (80 reviews) from Derbys , 15 Jul 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]This is an extremely well executed film that presents a 'no holes barred' look at what can happen when social drinking goes too far. Worse still the associated problems that can happen, especially when in this case one of the couple decides to go straight and come off the booze. Good acting by the two leads make the film even more believable and the director never tries to gloss anything up, hence leaving you with a true reflection of the situation that the films characters find themselves in. As a viewer, you certainly feel both anger and sadness towards the main characters which is a good indication of the realism that the film projects. In summary a much recommended low budget film to watch, however take my advice and don't bother opening a bottle of wine to accompany the film.

Weeknight worth it!By a customer , 19 Dec 2013Very much identified with the characters, thought they were incredibly convincing actors. Though I didn't think the school backdrop was particularly well done. Overall well worth a watch. Surprisingly short!
Aaron Paul, the scene stealerBy a customer , 30 Nov 2013Not quite a review, but I'm a fan of Aaron Paul after watching Breaking Bad. He's in the background through out the whole film, but it's amazing how he steals the last scene.
Smashed (but not out of the park)By Gee35 (23 reviews) , 30 Nov 2013Outstanding acting by the female lead. Poignant story overall but spoiled by lack of credibility for the whole school situation. Many North American films have a simplistic and adolescent way of dealing with alcohol and alcoholics, (not including Leaving Las Vegas) and this is no exception..
Really goodBy becky76 (1 review) , 06 Nov 2013Really good story and easy to identify with if you have ever been even a social drinker. Good acting by the lead characters
not badBy a customer , 04 Nov 2013i mainly started watching this film for the actor who plays jesse pinkman in breaking bad. was a bit disappointed as the movie was predictable and the ending wasn't the best, but on the other hand the acting was brilliant and you could she the struggle the main character goes through develop throughout the film. i would recommend you watch it.
