THE LOST WEEKEND

THE LOST WEEKEND

The alcoholic writer Don Birman (Milland) has hit bottom and begun to dig. Over six painful days he confronts the person he’s become whilst his long-suffering girlfriend Helen St. James (Wyman) tries to coax him back to his former, loving and sober self. Chronicling the self-destructions and degradations required to feed an addiction, The Lost Weekend remains a touchstone for its depiction of a man at the wrong end of his rope.
