Director: Luis Mandoki
Cast: Meg Ryan, Andy Garcia, Ellen Burstyn, Tina Majorino, Lauren Tom, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Mae Whitman, LaTanya Richardson, Eugene Roche, Gail Strickland, Susanna Thompson, Al Franken
Finally, alcoholism is portrayed as what it is–an illness and NOT a personality flaw. Meg Ryan plays Alice Green, wife, mother, and alcoholic, who hits her low point and recovery begins. The message is great, but there's not much entertainment value. 1 User Review

| the movie was fantastic; the meaning was so much more than her being an alcoholic; it was also about how an person can really have true love for someone to see them thru their toughess times; Meg Ryan was fantastic in the part she played, and Andy was the perfect understanding, husband, and father; I love this movie;|
