Molly spent this time detoxing and detoxifying herself again, but suddenly there is a glimmer of hope: After a few days in a facility, she is told about a blocker who is suppressing her feelings of addiction and giving her the chance to get back on her To let in feet, the catch is she has to be clean when she gets the shot, four days away.
“Four Good Days,” written and directed by Rodrigo García (a television veteran who worked on the script with Pulitzer Prize-winning Post reporter Eli Saslow) becomes a story of hope, and if Deb can allow himself to indulge in the feeling after years of pain and disappointment.
“I see glimpses of old minor,” she says, a claim that was received with caution by those around her, including her current husband (Stephen Root) and her ex.
Unfortunately, “Four Good Days” doesn’t really give anyone else much to do outside of its central duo, and even they are for the most part busy classifying the equivalent of a lifetime movie. Kunis captures Molly’s desperation, from her rotting teeth to confessions about the depths she sank into in her passion to get high.
The topic is sure to resonate with many, but despite its fact-based foundations, “Four Good Days” feels like a Frankenstein monster pieced together from previous addictive films. The story also glosses over the mother-daughter story at its core, leaving Molly’s assertion that Deb’s abandonment helped propel her on this addressed but not really explored path.
These are intoxicating topics, but as shown in “Four Good Days”, they don’t deliver 90 good minutes.
“Four Good Days” will premiere in US cinemas on April 30th. It is rated R.
