Описание: Молодая, красивая, знаменитая и богатая писательница Гвен Каммингс (Буллок), большая любительница выпить, не теряет при этом необходимого очарования. Она опаздывает на свадьбу сестры, будучи уже хорошо опохмеленной, устраивает полный бардак, и даже падает на свадебный торт. Потом угоняет лимузин новобрачных и врезается в чей-то дом. По приговору суда она должна отбыть 28 дней в реабилитационном центре для алкоголиков и наркоманов...
Предсказуемая развлекательная комедия с доброй долей морализаторства и мелодрамы для поклонников и поклонниц Сандры Буллок. Можно и посмеяться, и слезу пустить. (Иванов М.)
Рецензии: There are a lot of good things about 28 Days, especially from Sandra Bullock and Betty Thomas (Director). Don't be fooled by the advertisers and trailers, this movie is a drama. There is a little comedy thrown in the mix to keep things light at times (after all, rehab is a depressing subject), but the balance is about 80/20% in favor of drama.
Sandra really shines. This movie is all hers and she proves that while bubbly and energetic may be her niche, she can also be gritty and subtle to great effect. She's always been a very solid and dependable actress, but she gets to dig deeper here. She could have played this role in so many ways that would have been easy and predictable, but luckily she gave just the right amount of weight to her character. It's certainly her best acting performance.
Betty Thomas also delivers another strong effort. The pacing and amount of scene time seem just right. There is very interesting camera work and flashback scenes that work very well. I guess the best thing to say is that she made a formula movie (girl bottoms out, girl resists rehab, girl comes to terms and embraces recovery) without boring us with the formula.
In short, the best thing about the movie is what it wasn't. It could have been so cliched (although there were a couple of unavoidable ones) and paint-by-numbers. Instead, it was more subtle rather than over the top.
There are good performances by all, especially Steven Buscemi who plays his small role straight and somber. This film has higher artistic/merit value than it does entertainment value (afterall, how entertaining can a movie about rehab be?). It's a solid 7
