Read an Excerpt

28 Days
Gwen Cummings (Sandra Bullock) is a party girl who masks her pain by abusing alcohol and popping pills. After Gwen ruins her sister's wedding reception and destroys a front porch with a stolen limousine, the court makes her face reality by ordering her into a substance abuse treatment center. She only has 28 days to get herself cleaned up or she faces a prison sentence. She wastes the first week by keeping to herself and believing she can control her problem if she really wants to.
Gwen's counselor (Steve Buscemi) is speaking about his past addictions. He describes how being sober between highs didn't feel very good—his skin screamed, his hands shook, and his stomach threatened to jump out of his throat. Now Gwen is fighting these same withdrawal symptoms by climbing out her third-story window to retrieve a bottle of pills she threw out earlier. What starts as a quick fix ends in added physical suffering when Gwen injures her leg and can't take painkillers.
