The Lost Weekend
Summary: Winner of four Academy Awards(R), including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay, Billy Wilder's unflinching 1945 classic about an alcoholic was groundbreaking for its time and remains a still-powerful drama. Ray Milland gives an Oscar(R)-winning performance as a frustrated, aspiring writer whose downward spiral is vividly and starkly charted over the course of several days as he goes on a self-destructive booze binge--despite the best efforts of his girlfriend (Jane Wyman)--and winds up in Bellevue Hospital. "A chef d'oeuvre of motion-picture art" (New York Times). With Phillip Terry, Howard da Silva, Doris Dowling and Frank Faylen. Directed by Billy Wilder ("Sunset Boulevard"); screenplay by Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder, from the novel by Charles Jackson. (TVPG) (AC)
