My review for the book, Tweak by Nic Sheff


REVIEW:

After reading the book by Nic Sheff, I needed to see the film. So I grabbed a copy and watched it alone.

Man, I needed tissues at the end. I cried and cried. It hit home so hard. Like, that could have been me.

It was a powerful book, and while the movie hit every emotional cord in me, the book was still better. There was more detail for one, and the book was by Nic's point of view. The movie was more his dad's. There is a book out there in his dad's viewpoint, which I would read if the opportunity arises.

This was not a movie that will be on everyone's to-watch list but I am glad I watched it. Made me so grateful for Nic's sobriety, and my own.



4/5

  1. Those 2 books and the movie tell a powerful story; I would have to be in a certain mood, upbeat and optimistic, to watch it, as the theme must be heartrending. You mention your and Nic's sobriety, which suggests the movie ends on an upbeat note.

  2. I enjoyed this film too. I read both Nic and David's books which was good for getting both perspectives.

But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

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
