don't sweat the small stuff. it takes up too much precious time.
While not what most consider a movie buff, since the advent of HD I have accumulated over 200 movies but there are few that I've watched more than once let alone several times. My sister was in town recently and the topic of fire somehow came up and I suggested we watch this. We lost our mother 10 months ago and have struggled a bit so some seens really made us think and I believe helped in some way. She also really liked it and said she will be recommending it to a friend or two as well.
The acting and writing is so strong you can feel as well as understand how each character feels and thinks and why.
I cannot say enough about this movie.
INSTANTLY became my favorite movie that deals with drug rehabiliation! It is HIGHLY
recommended for those who work in the field of drug/alcohol counseling and/or Mental Health, as I do.
Excellent acting, cute children, light-hearted comedy, are all included in this movie, which helped to make it entertaining and less heart wrenching to watch. My only regrets are that I didn't see it YEARS ago, and that I didn't have more tissues close at hand for the first time I watched it. The second time around, I was well prepared - but, don't get me wrong, it is NOT a "chick flick". It was first recommended to me by one of my male clients (who is a recovering addict) and other males at work also think it is an outstanding movie!
