Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average It's a heartbreaking true story and one that surely will resonate with viewers who've experienced addiction themselves. But there's a gauzy detachment in Van Groeningen's approach that keeps it from achieving the kind emotional wallop it seemingly intended.

USA Today Full Review
Good ...exceptional performances from Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet, who make a father and son's struggles feel all too real. While the sometimes confusing non-linear narrative keeps the whole package from coming together, the first-rate acting more than makes up for it...

NY Post Full Review
Average The movie stays admirably true to the lives it's based on, by showing the many, many times Nic relapses. He (Steve Carell) makes a believable dad to the equally moving Chalamet, who writhes, screams and cries, but never showboats. The perfect pair is better than this movie.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good ...fiercely moving... The script draws on memoirs from both father and son, and the dual perspective gives the film its devastating impact. This movie really puts you through a wringer. But it's the two leads who, thanks to their astonishing, ripped-from-the-guts performances, make this movie a standout.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
At 18, Nicolas Sheff was a good student, editor of his high school newspaper, an actor in the school play and a member of the water polo team. A voracious reader and a talented artist, Nic was set to enter college in the fall. He had started experimenting with drugs when he was 12, but in his late teens he tried meth for the first time and, as he writes, "the world went from black and white to Technicolor." Nic went almost instantly from a teenager dabbling with substances to a having a full-blown dependency.
