As someone in recovery I watched this movie and was deeply moved by the amount of identification I got. It brought home the depths that a person can go when trapped in a disease which many class as anti-social behaviour. The parts played by Nicholson and Streep were simply superb and how an Oscar was not forthcoming is beyond me. Why this movie has never been released on DVD can be only a matter of conjecture but I for one think that its true content may not be suitable for those that still want to doubt.
A must for anyone who has a bit of compassion and an education for those that haven't.
