MEDIA OF THE WEEK:(@64.24) I Smile Back 2015, Sarah Silverman on Amazon
I Smile Back not only tackles addiction, depression, mental illness, but breaking the patterns that have been, and are being, passed down generation to generation. The film is brave. The script is bold. It will leave you with a sense of reality some may not be ready to accept.
