Clean and Sober

Movie: Clean and Sober
Director: Glenn Gordon Caron
Produced by: Warner Brothers
Released By: Warner Brothers
MPAA Rating: R

The directorial debut of Glenn Gordon Caron, the creator of the television series Moonlighting, this intense, gritty drama was received as one of the best-ever cinematic treatments of substance abuse. Michael Keaton stars as Daryl Poynter, a hustling, successful Philadelphia real estate agent who has become addicted to cocaine. He’s already got problems, including nearly a $100,000 embezzled from his employer and lost on the stock market, when he wakes up one morning with a young woman dead in his bed from a coke overdose. His company is asking questions about the missing funds, and the dead girl’s father is plastering his neighborhood with posters accusing Daryl of being a murderer, so he decides to hide out in an anonymous drug treatment program. There, however, Daryl runs into tough-minded counselor and former addict Craig, who has heard all of Daryl’s lies and tricks before. Daryl also finds romance with an abused fellow addict, Charlie Standers, and understanding with his Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor.
