HALF NEL­SON

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

10.40PM, FOX­TEL MAS­TER­PIECE ★★★★ A pop­u­lar school­teacher tries to hang on to his job while nurs­ing a chronic ad­dic­tion to crack co­caine. Will the dis­cov­ery of his plight by a young stu­dent help or hin­der any chance of re­cov­ery? What fol­lows is a ten­der, yet test­ing tale of friend­ship, code­pen­dency and the on­go­ing de­nial of a func­tion­ing ad­dict. An un­touch­ably bril­liant mod­ern drama, with tremen­dously af­fect­ing per­for­mances from leads Ryan Gosling and Sha­reeka Epps.
