Movie Info

BOTTLED UP" (Olympus Pictures), a film starring Oscar (R)-winner Melissa Leo in a modern day drama in which she beautifully conveys the heart-wrenching struggle that comes with love and addiction, will make its debut as one of the high-profile titles unveiled by Evan Crooke's OSIRIS ENTERTAINMENT at this year's American Film Market, Nov 6 - 13, 2013. Director Enid Zentelis, nearly a decade after the success of her critically acclaimed "Evergreen," offers a stirring look into the debilitating effects of prescription drug abuse through the eyes of a talented cast with Leo as the protagonist faced with the difficult choice of living a life dictated by the daughter (played by Marin Ireland) she loves or beginning to live according to her own needs. Josh Hamilton also stars. (C) Osiris

Critic Reviews for Bottled Up

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5)

A terminally quirky indie dramedy, "Bottled Up" risks trivializing prescription drug abuse in service of a trite middle-age romance.

A small, intimate, bittersweet, and wonderfully crafted love story, it may very well add a spring to your step as you exit the theater.

You watch "Bottled Up" feeling that the screenplay needed a few more drafts; the dialogue, in particular, doesn't always ring true.

The intentions feel authentic, but not enough else does.

Like Sylvie's wardrobe of oversized hoodies, the humor is loose and natural. It breaks up the tension of this addiction story with small, bright moments of pure joy.
