Molly has spent that time going in and out of detox, but suddenly has a glimpse of hope: after a few days at a facility, she tells of a blocker that will calm her feelings of intoxication and her Will give you a chance to get back. The leg, after being away for four days, has to be cleaned when it is shot.
Written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia (a TV veteran who worked on the script with Ellie Saslow, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Post reporter), “Four Good Days” thus becomes a story of hope, and what Deb finds herself getting into. Can allow you to feel after years of pain and frustration.
“I’m seeing a glimpse of the old mole,” she says, met with caution by people around her, including her current husband (Stephen Root) and her ex.
Unfortunately, “Four Good Days” doesn’t really give anyone anything to do beyond their central pairing, and even they are largely trying to equal class a Lifetime film. Kunis redeems Mollie’s frustration, from his decaying teeth to the penetration of the depths of which he is immersed in his zeal to learn.
The subject matter will certainly resonate for many, but even with its fact-based premise, “Four Good Days” feels like a Frankenstein monster, stitched together from previous drunk movies. The story also traces the history of mother-daughter at its core, which leaves Molly’s belief that Deb’s renunciation contributed to her walking along this passage addressed to her, but is not actually revealed.
Those are the main issues, but as presented in “Four Good Days”, they fall short of giving 90-something-good minutes.
“Four Good Days” will premiere in US theaters on April 30. It is rated R.
