User Reviews: I gave this movie a 10/10 review which seems a bit silly, but really for what it is I cannot really see it being much better. Acting, writing and direction was all really very good. The story is a simple one and familiar but very compelling for all that. The main characters were very real, relate-able and likable. Made me want to know them and I find myself wondering how they all made out. Jimmy portrayed the desperation of a real addict, but at the same time a quiet dignity and determination even in the face of his own weakness and the likelihood of relapse. Really liked it a lot and I don’t say that about many movies.
