Over the GW

1hr 18min | 2007
OVER THE GW tells writer/director Nick Taglia's own harrowing tale of drug rehabilitation in the late 90's. The story follows troubled siblings as they are removed from their Bronx home and committed to a New Jersey treatment center by their well-meaning parents. As an expected 30-day stay stretches to two years, the siblings are systematically brainwashed into a state of objected fear by cult-like staff members. Resembling jail-time more then rehabilitation, the film, strikingly remarkable in its restraint and the gradual erosion of free will, exposes physically and mentally abusive reprogramming masquerading as rehabilitation.
