Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 08/10/1988
"...[The film] works slowly, carefully and finally quite affectingly....The perfect role for [Keaton]..."
Los Angeles Times - 08/10/1988
"...There is a momentum here, a quality of risk and an urgency to the story..."
USA Today - 03/17/1989
"...Michael Keaton takes a successful career stretch as a 'what-me-worry' type....[Freeman] is terrific..."

Product Description:

A real-estate salesman whose addiction to drugs and alcohol is destroying his life, reluctantly enters a detoxification program. Along with his physical recovery, he begins his emotional recuperation when he falls for a fellow patient.

Plot Synopsis:

A Philadelphia real estate agent's life is on a collision course with disaster. After sharing cocaine with a girl he meets in a bar, he wakes up the next day in her bed to find she's dead from an overdose. Trouble also looms at work since he owes $92,000 that he embezzled from the company and lost in a risky investment. Meanwhile, his cocaine problem is becoming progressively worse.
To avoid the mounting pressure placed on him at work and the unresolved issues surrounding the girl's death, he checks himself into a drug treatment facility, mainly because it promises complete confidentiality. There, he thinks, he can avoid the neverending inquiries; what he finds at the clinic, though, is a tough counselor who does not take recovery lightly, and who forces him to reassess his motivations for becoming a patient.
