Why Isn't this Adam's Story?

This is about Charlie, the guy who had too easy of a life and who blew it all on a life of drugs. I found Charlie to be impossible to sympathize with or to care about because his attitude is two-dimensional. On the other hand, his best friend, Adam, who supports him in every way, now that's a story. Now he's a person I want to know better. Devon Bosticks is impossible to look away from. No offense to Nick Robinson because he's good. (It's Nick's character that is less interesting.) Adam as a character is that friend that every one of us wants. Wants to be. And Eva? I couldn't care less. Her character is boring. ..... As for the film as a whole, worth a watch. The story is human.

Work makes you free

Charlie (Nick Robinson) is white and privileged and at rehab, whose dirty little secret is that they have a high failure rate. Charlie is struggling with addiction and his best friend is his dealer (Devon Bostick). He meets Eva (Morgan Saylor) at rehab, who is also an enabler. Charlie's dad is a movie star running for governor of California (Cary Elwes).

The film brushes on the inability of rehab to be successful unless the user wants to change. Heroin addiction is lifetime, even to someone off the substance for decades, the urge comes back. As of this writing, I have one relative in jail (twice in rehab) and another in rehab for addiction for the third time. The truth is, these stories are not like my massage parlor and don't typically have a happy ending.

Drama with numerous light comedic moments.

Guide: F-word, sex, nudity (Morgan Saylor, Aubrey Reynolds)
