From Oscar and Emmy-winning filmmaker Ellen Goosenberg Kent and journalist/producer Perri Peltz, Risky Drinking takes a case-study look at the risks of alcohol use and the ways in which the medical community is viewing and treating “risky drinkers” today. Profiling four subjects (filmed over the course of several months in 2014), who fall at different points on the spectrum of problem drinking, from binge drinking to alcohol dependence, the film provides an up-close-and-personal look at men and women from different walks of life, united in their struggle with alcohol and its detrimental effect on their physical health, relationships and happiness. Interspersed with these powerful stories are informative interviews with addiction experts, who explain the science behind alcohol-use disorder, as well as stunning statistics about its prevalence and hazards. Equal parts informative and empathetic, Risky Drinking is a humanizing account of the serious, often lifelong problem of alcohol addiction, offering strategies and resources for those who are, many times, literally fighting for their lives.
