Synopsis

Dan is an idealistic history teacher in a Brooklyn high school who leads a secret life of addiction. When a troubled student named Drey makes the startling discovery of his habit, the two strike up an unlikely friendship that threatens either to undo them or provide a catalyst of hope for change.

MUBI's take

Yes, his handsomeness has inspired several internet memes, but don’t forget that Ryan Gosling is also one of the finest actors of his generation. His gripping, and morally ambiguous performance in this ace American indie earned an Oscar nod. A thought-provoking drama about an unexpected friendship.
