Being Charlie (2015) - Synopsis
Charlie Mills has just turned 18 and is running away from rehab, again. Returning home, he is shocked to learn that his father, a former film star currently running for Governor of California, has staged an intervention, with the goal of making Charlie address--and, hopefully, conquer--his substance abuse issues far from the harsh glare of the media. Reluctantly, Charlie enters a new adult facility where he meets a kindred spirit, Eva, and their budding romance looks like it might be an antidote to his strained relationship with a highly preoccupied father and overly indulgent mother. The question is, will these two kids help each other or lead one another down yet another rabbit hole? Facing more obstacles, restrictions, disappointments and even tragedies than any 18-year-old should have to, Charlie is forced to begin the difficult but necessary journey to self-discovery and acceptance.
