The spiritual part is up to you.
Ann E.
The story revolves around alcoholism and whether or not it is a disease.

This movie was ...
short & sweet > 75 min
INTELLIGENT
awkward

There are only 3 characters whom interact awkwardly while showing immense intelligence.

I was thoroughly enjoying Jonathan Pryce putting the other 2 throught the ringer.
Quite entertaining!

With their denial, their contradictions and their acceptance we can see the different paths of three people who meet in a story around alcoholism, and alcoholics. The description of the addictions and alcoholism revealed with the behavior of the people concerned by this disease is very realistic. It shows their patterns without mercy but with compassion. Every character is difficult to play but the actors manage to fit perfectly in their part showing us the best and the worst in them. Most of the dialogues are powerful and provoking. This movie gives us the opportunity of seeing Jonathan Pryce, Paddy Considine and Uma Thurman in a great acting performance. Their talents contribute to give us a good movie about a difficult topic.

Just my opinion, but this movie is awful and stilted. And it is written by someone who seems not to know much about Alcoholics Anonymous or addiction. I can't speak for AA. AA does not self-promote or recruit people. It's up to the addict to come on their own and work the program. Although there are court appointed people who are required to attend but AA has no part in that but they welcome anyone who wants to stop drinking. The goal is to be functioning and happy and for your life to flourish. Addicts are never cured. They work the program as their medicine to stay healthy. Just as a diabetic takes insulin. There are no requirements to attend, just a desire to stop drinking. They don't require any payment. Just ask for donations at meetings to help pay the rent for the room and some other things like buying free literature to give to beginners. It's not just about sharing your low self esteem, complaining, whining and just not drinking. It's about using suggestions to help you deal with life and be happy. The spiritual part is up to you. But you use a higher power as one of the tools. You find your own way to use it. To help you get out of your own way. Meditation is encouraged and that is well-documented as something that is very helpful. This film makes no sense. It's stupid, in my opinion. Just idiotic. Just intellectualizing something that is an illness. AA helps people to maintain sobriety, it does not "dull" them or ruin their creativity, it enhances it and frees them to live full, happy lives. There is a lot of craziness that goes with being an alcoholic and it gives you tools to deal with that and handle life and relationships better.

Format: DVD
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. This is a movie adaptation of a play by David Hare
2. It centers around three characters
3. It deals with alcoholism and infidelity
4. But mostly it's a debate on the value of the AA programme
5. I would have fallen asleep, but zinc beds are too darned uncomfortable

Slow moving, rather dry British movie fails to hold the viewer's interest despite the efforts of Jonathan Pryce as a somewhat annoying wealthy businessman and Uma Thurman as his trophy wife. Paddy Considine's character runs the gamut from boring to blotto to bewildered, stopping just a tad short of believable.

I've read that the original play is bewitching, but the magic certainly hasn't transferred to the big screen.

Recommended only as punishment for alcoholics and cheaters.
