Editorial Reviews

Jessica Rasdall killed her best friend, Laura Gorman, when she crashed her car while driving drunk after a night of partying in 2006. In the three years since that fateful night, Rasdall has confessed her crime to more than 15,000 people, both young and old, in a speech that never varies, describing the minute details of that tragic night. Rasdall's story is a cautionary tale of love and loss, of overwhelming regret and remorse.

Even as she tries to atone for what happened, she faces accusations of hypocrisy from the Gorman family, who say that her public speaking is merely an attempt to win leniency from the courts. She also has been accused of a pattern of dangerous behavior, of having mixed alcohol and driving in the past. Is she telling her story to save other teens, or is it a calculated speech to save herself from prison?

this ABC 20/20 documentary examines an actual case of DUI manslaughter which occurred in the mid-2000's. Two teenage best friends, after a night of partying and drinking alcohol, crash into a tree on their way home. The driver of the car survives, her friend doesn't.

What follows in this story are interviews with the driver, the passenger's parents, the driver's parents, and the prosecuting attorney.

this video is especially helpful for teens and young adults in their 20's who often takes risks when it comes to drinking and driving.

I use this video in chemical abuse education classes as I work with clients convicted of DUIs. I find this video helps my clients in developing insight into the life threatening nature of drunk driving and helps them understand how it alters so many lives. I highly recommend this video for anyone exploring the horrendous consequences of drunk driving.

Film provides a strong message and is a gateway for discussion on a wide range of topics; alcohol and drug use, alcohol and drugged driving, DUI laws, consequences, choices and their affects on us and others, friendships, conscience and right and wrong, acceptance, and more. Leads to insightful exchanges and self reflection on our own driving experiences and choices involving drugs and alcohol.

Very real, hard facts for a group to really understand about the effects on others as well as their own choices.

This video can be an interesting set up for several DUI group topics such as affects, laws, and a good eye openers for teens.

Very powerful and excellent for a law or class (or your own "It won't ever be me" teenagers) that deals with alcohol and the changing view we as a society have towards those who drive drunk. I can't imagine the family's extreme anguish and pain over the gruesome death of their 7 year old Katie and I thank them for sharing their story in the hopes it will scare one of the teenagers I teach into putting down their keys.

Bought this to use in a group I facilitate for minors who are busted drinking. I have shown it to adult groups who think it is not quite what they need to see. A good discussion about minimization of the young ladies drinking by herself and her family ensued.

Interesting to show for substance abuts classes. It was too short though. I Wish a compilation video could be done.
