Director Darren Aronofsky sheds light on the complexity and irreversible effects of hard drug use in America and the ugly, often tragic, consequences of drug addiction. Requiem For A Dream follows the interweaving story of several individuals trying to achieve their dreams. One such story is that of a starry-eyed young couple, Harry and Marion (Jared Leto and Jennifer Connelly), who become addicted to heroin. Their friend Tyrone (played by Shawn Wayans) starts distributing and following into the streets' drug scene. Harry's mother, Sarah, also falls into the irreversible effects of drugs use by becoming addicted to diet pills. Alone in her apartment, widowed, and seeking the attention she once had, Sarah takes diet pills to fit into her favorite red dress in order to appear on her favorite game show. Perhaps the most memorable and heart-breaking story, Sarah is alone with her delusions and addiction. In combination, these three stories are an unforgettable testament to how drug addiction progresses until it is too little too late for those addicted. Gritty, powerful, cerebral, and often times difficult to watch, Requiem for a Dream is a rush of an unforgettable movie.
