REVIEW:
Tough subject matter.
This is one of those movies the hubster would call a 'Chick Flick' and stopped watching. Better for me though, than I can get lost in the deeply heartbreaking story.
Jen Aniston plays a role like I've never seen her play before. A woman who is addicted to pain meds after experiencing so much loss. I was gutted. Aniston played the part so well I felt her pain. 
For the life of me, I can't believe there wasn't more hoopla around this film in theaters. And why did she not win an Oscar, 'cause she should've. This movie and her performance, were spot on! It was well-played and well-made!

4/5

  2. This is a surprising performance by Jennifer Anniston. I have always seen her as a "fluff" actress. Her career is about to change.

  3. Sounds like a great performance by Aniston. And count me in as one who completely missed seeing any ads/trailers for the movie theaters--I hadn't heard of it til now.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
