Movies We Watch
This movie is about a has-been alcoholic country singer who sings in bingo halls instead of the big venues. He meets a journalist and they both fall in love until his alcoholism gets him in trouble.
One day he wakes up and says "I want to be sober" but it comes a little bit too late. The ending was bittersweet. John asked me if alcoholics drink to be happy. I told him, alcoholics drink to escape. To escape problems and relationships and many times they are in denial they are alcoholics until it is too late.
This is an amazing movie! Not for kids at all! We give it 4 1/2 stars!
