Film Review - Four Good Days


“Four Good Days” takes on the dark subject matter of drug addiction, but the picture isn’t completely interested in just the user’s perspective. There are more sides to this story, with the film taking inspiration from a 2016 newspaper article writer by Eli Saslow (who also co-scripts), giving the endeavor some foundation of reality to help examine troubled lives pushed to their breaking point. Co-writer/director Rodrigo Garcia (“Albert Nobbs,” “Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her”) attempts to dramatize a distinctly tortuous relationship shared between a paranoid mother and her junkie daughter, and “Four Good Days” certainly captures the hopelessness of such a union, which has been destroyed through years of lying and betrayal. Emotions are strong in the feature, but melodramatic scenes throttle the intended power of the material, keeping a well-intentioned movie struggling to remain authentic with real-world horrors.
