Synopsis: Ten years of opioid use have left young Molly’s life in shambles. A new medicine could give her wings to start over if she is able to stay clean for four days, something she tries to achieve with the help of her mother Deb, a woman of strong ideas. Their love for each other will be tested like never before in their lives.
Review: Rodrigo García, a Colombian director accustomed to narrating intimate stories that delve into the most domestic female universe, reaches a remarkable level of realism in 4 days. He adapts, practically word for word, his initial journalistic work, achieving that rare but precious virtue of great stories based on real events: they turn out to be incredible even while noting authenticity. Glenn Close, his fetish actress, shines while Mila Kunis manages to convince us of her skill again, as she has not done since Black Swan (2010).
