I am a recovering Meth Addict and I will say Scot Elrod(Cory Brand) did an excellent job portraying an addict. I felt the sense of struggle through his acting and the very same struggle I went through. When Cory tells The CR Minister he just can not stop- That was me! This is an excellent movie and Freedom is Possible. Nothing great happens when we hold back! We took men and women from the homeless shelter as well some of which are addicts and everyone was moved and touched by this movie- one lady came up to me and said I wan to start coming every Sunday to church! Several of the guys told me that they want to start coming to CR every week. This movie was not just a movie- this particular movie was a tool that touched lives, including mine. The Theater was packed out and the manager came to me and said "We have not been this busy since the Passion of Christ" Every one of us struggle with our hurts, habits and hangups- this movie is for everyone!

Fantastic movie about the tragic bipolar life of an alcoholic and the complete powerlessness of the disease. Finally, a movie that DE-stigmatizes 12 step programs such as CR! I wouldn't take the kids though. The movie gives an honest glimpse of the tragic hurts and addictions and the power of recovery.

This is a great movie about healing from past hurts and redemption. Good acting and cinematography. A few lulls here and there but they aren't long. Also an excellent movie for church groups to go see. I would not take children below the age of 12, due to the fact of the story being about a recovering alcoholic. It's just a little too deep for a younger child to understand everything that is going on. There is no cussing or sex which is very refreshing!

I fought addicitions to alcohol and drugs for 30 years. I like Cory in the movie found the way to stop in Celebrate Recovery. This movie has the power to change people.
