A domestic drama about a husband and wife who attempt to deal with her problems with alcoholism, which are equally bad during sobriety.
Andy Garcia and Meg Ryan deliver a good pair of performances, but the longer the film continues, the less convincing it becomes, especially in its quest for a mawkish, sappy Hollywood ending.
6/10
