Addicted

Plot: About a woman addicted to sex and the consequences of her actions.

Year: 2014

Director: Bille Woodruff

Starring: William Levy, Sharon Leal, Boris Kodjoe, Tyson Beckford and Kat Graham.

It’s an average film, available on Netflix. I though the relationship between the main character and her lover was too rushed and felt very forced but then when you realise she’s a sex addict it kind of makes sense. You also see that she doesn’t really feel guilty about what she’s doing, especially as the film progresses but I guess that’s because she’s addicted.

I really disliked the main character. It’s not because she was cheating on her husband, she just wasn’t likeable for me. The only time I seemed to have any sympathy towards her was right at the end when she reveals her past which wasn’t very nice.

*SPOILERS*

When her husband finds out what she’s been up to she steps in front of a moving car that is going extremely fast. That car properly took her out and she flew right into the air. If you watch it, it looks like an accident that no one could walk away from but she did and I was kind of gutted. I thought the film was going to end on a sad note but it didn’t. She survived, miraculously and then her husband eventually forgave her. She goes to meetings to help her with her addiction and they live happily ever after.

I’m not sure I would recommend the film. I would leave this film as a last resort.

Rating: 4/10.
