a truly heartbreaking film.

i feel.... numb after watching this. nicolas cage was amazing, he deserved an oscar for acting as an alcoholic. i heard that he really drank a lot and went around to talk to alcoholics so he could portray this role better.

a hooker who was physically and sexually abused, she met a depressed suicidal alcoholic and they fell in love with each other. they were together for a very short amount of time but at least their love was real.
