Requiem For a Dream


A look at drug addiction in middle-class America, as experienced by two generations of the same family. Mom, desperate to lose weight to get onto a TV show, becomes addicted to diet pills, while the youngsters, who became drug dealers as a temporary way to make some quick cash, sample their products and find them irresistable. As the weather deteriorates from summer to winter, so too does the family.

Adam Sanborn (21): The film is a great film!!

Anne Marie Alikashuak (18): This movie has got to be the greatest movie of this lifetime. It doesn't sugar coat the reality of drug abuse, it tells it like it is. I love this movie.
