The Lost Weekend (1945)

Director: Billy Wilder
Cast: Ray Milland, Jane Wyman, Frank Faylen, Phillip Terry   
Genre: Drama

The Lost Weekend (1945)
Plot: Struggle of a failed, alcoholic writer  with life, love, friends and everything else worthwhile.

If you want to experience cinema which is beyond words, look no further. The Lost Weekend has it all.
Spot on direction by Billy Wilderand, very strong performances by the lead trio: Ray Milland, Jane Wyman, Frank Faylen, and a strong script complementing both.

Milland's character is fight is alcoholism. Will he succeed, will he win this personal battle? Yes he will, of course...but without spoiling the classic for any of you: it's not about whether he will succeed or not, it is about "How". This "How" is the backbone of film/script and has been dealt with to perfection, and brought on screen.

A definite must watch.
