FOUR GOOD DAYS | MAY 28 – JUNE 17
Directed by Rodrigo Garcia | Stars Glenn Close, Mila Kunis, Stephen Root
In an emotional journey based on a true story by Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post writer Eli Saslow, 31-year-old Molly (Mila Kunis) begs her estranged mother Deb (Glenn Close) for help fighting a fierce battle against the demons that have derailed her life. Despite all she has learned over a decade of disappointment, grief and rage, Deb throws herself into one last attempt to save her beloved daughter from the deadly and merciless grip of heroin addiction. Powerhouse performances from Glenn Close and Mila Kunis anchor director Rodrigo García’s poignant and unpredictable chronicle of mother and daughter fighting to regain the love and trust that once held them together. Rated R. 100 minutes.
“What sets “Four Good Days” apart from the many other films of its ilk are Close and Kunis, who sharpen and elevate its well-worn contours with vivid performances that are honest and grounded.” Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post
“Scene by scene, Close and Kunis drag us into their family problems, and we end up caring.” Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
The story portrayed in Four Good Days is the true story of Amanda Wendler and her mother, Libby Alexander. While this story is unique to them, the film reveals some universal truths, contradictions, and dilemmas about addiction, treatment, recovery, and the impact on families. It is our hope that our film not only honors the experience of families going through this, but also raises awareness about the opioid crisis and provides resources for anyone in need of help.
