Watch Four Good Days
In the drama film Four Good Days, a mother struggles to help her daughter recover from addiction. The film's title comes from the young woman's attempt to have four clean days while living with her mother after leaving rehab. The film is based on an article that was published in the Washington Post in 2016. The movie received generally negative reviews from critics. A year after last seeing her, 31 year-old drug-addict Margaret “Molly” Wheeler (Mila Kunis) walks to her mother Deb’s (Glenn Close) house remembering times before her fall. She insists that she is ready to be sober and begs her mother to allow her to stay for a few days before going to detox. Deb, although clearly ambivalent about the matter, stands resilient with the support of her husband Chris (Stephen Root), fearing that supporting Molly in any way will serve as an enabler. Molly spends the night outside her mother’s house and is persistent about her recovery. The next morning a frustrated Deb agrees to take Molly to detox. Upon arrival, it is revealed that Molly has been an addict for over a decade, has lost custody of her children, and is on her 15th attempt at sobriety. Four days after commencing detox, she is offered an opioid antagonist in order to help her on the road to sobriety. However, she must stay off any drugs for an additional four days before it is safe for her to receive the first shot, and then expect an additional shot each month.
