Quotes:
“THIS IS AN INTIMATE, INCREDIBLY TENSE DRAMA ABOUT A TROUBLED FAMILY BATTLING RAW EMOTIONAL PAINS, A BARE-BONES AND BARE-KNUCKLED LOOK AT THE DESTRUCTIVE POWERS OF ADDICTION.”
– Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune

“THE MOVIE’S REAL ACHIEVEMENT LIES IN ROBERTS’S PERFORMANCE, WHICH IS POSSIBLY HER BEST. HOLLY IS INCANDESCENT WITH WORRY. SHE’S GOOD AND KIND AND INTIMATE.”
– Josephine Livingstone, The New Republic

“ROBERTS… TAKES HOLD OF THIS MOVIE LIKE A LAMPPOST IN THE WINTER DARKNESS.”
– Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

“DRUG ADDICTION HAS BEEN EXPLORED IN MANY MOVIES, BUT THIS IS AN ESPECIALLY REVEALING LOOK INTO NOT ONLY THE NATURE OF AN ADDICT, BUT THE EFFECT HE HAS HAD ON HIS OWN FAMILY, AND ON THE LIVES OF MANY OTHER PEOPLE IN A TIGHT-KNIT COMMUNITY.”
– Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
