Synopsis

Harry and his girlfriend Marion dream of transcending their life of hustling and owning a store. While his mother is obsessed with TV and diet pills and envisions her chance to shine again on a game show. However, their dreams are shattered when their drug addictions begin spiraling out of control.

Our take

Darren Aronofsky’s feverish descents into the twin worlds of addiction and discipline unleash staggering results from actors fearless enough to submit to his vision. Before Brendan Fraser and The Whale, Ellen Burstyn got an Oscar® nod for her devastating turn as a poor, diet- and drug-addled soul.
