Intense, Clever, Absorbing

See it if The cast as alcoholics were spot on. The son did an excellent job. Smart set design. Reminiscent of most alcoholic genes. I enjoyed it.

Don't see it if You dont like addiction portrayals or small venues. There were many pauses with actors off stage.

Somewhat banal and cliched, Slow, Quirky, Disappointing, Relevant

See it if you are up for the horrible affect of drug and alcohol abuse on a family - good, young actor in first role, good points on rights/tolerance.

Don't see it if you want a flawless production - acting is uneven, set and prop problems, script is long and lumpy, pauses interrupt flow. Long first act.
