Requiem for a Dream

2000, Rated R

Harry Goldfarb (Jared Leto) spends most of time getting high with his friend, Tyrone (Marlon Wayans) and his girlfriend, Marion (Jennifer Connelly). For the most part, Harry acts as though their lifestyle is a harmless one, but he becomes concerned when his mother (Ellen Burstyn) is prescribed diet pills by her doctor. Her son’s words of warning are scoffed by Sara, who is trying to lose weight for a possible TV appearance.
As Harry and Tyrone resort to desperate measures for drug money, Marion finds her relationship with Harry in a dark corner and Sara takes more pills for their pep-inducing side effects. The four soon find themselves struggling to control addictions that may actually be controlling them.
