The story

Actor-comedian Richard Lewis and Academy Award winners Faye Dunaway and Dianne Wiest lead an all-star case that includes Amanda Plummer, Parker Posey, Spalding Gray, Calista Flockhart and Sam Rockwell in this poignant story of friendship, survival and redemption. The first film to take an in-depth look at the inner workings of a twelve-step program, Drunks is a probing journey into the lives of a group of recovering alcoholics who gather in a Times Square church basement for an AA meeting. Collectively they share their hopes, fear, triumphs and frailties -- keeping their faith even as a dramatic upheaval threatens the life of a man they all admire.
