6 Balloons

I avoided this movie on Netflix for quite sometime but after watching it I really wish I haven’t. As some one who’s been through many situations in life without getting too specific this movie really hit home. I recommend this to 16 and up because of how powerful it is. I knew many addicts when I was a teenager and this movie hit a home run when describing the mental state of those sober and intoxicated. Many teens think drugs are something they can do and bounce back but unfortunately that is not always the case especially when digging deeper and deeper into that rabbit hole. The withdrawal scenes boosted my anxiety and were making my skin crawl because of how accurate the recreation of those scenes were. I will not spoil the movie but this is a great watch that leaves you with a bitter sweet taste in your mouth. Be warned it is neither a happy or sad ending.
