Being Charlie (2015)

Being Charlie 2015

US Title:
Being Charlie
Rob Reiner

What’s It About?
A troubled and cynical 18-year old is forced into an adult drug rehabilitation program.

Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
There is a good story here trying to be told, about a young man battling his demons; about a mother who loves her child but cannot save him; about a father who wants to connect but doesn’t know how; about the damaging stigma attached to drug addiction and rehab. Unfortunately, all of that gets buried underneath a script that is slow, unengaging and – worst of all – predictable.

Final Grade: C
