Okay, so it's not a Friday-night rental you can enjoy with a couple of beers. But this film about an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting rivets with unswerving intensity. Its exceptional cast gathers in a church basement to bare their battles with booze, with Lewis emerging a surprising standout. The film's most sobering message? There's hope.
