Very much enjoyed watching and highly recommend “The Road Within” – excellent story, great acting.
Characters in whose extreme forms of behavior – and related thinking / mental processes – one can see tendencies to which anyone can be prone. I definitely could for myself anyway.
This is very much a movie about self-acceptance, especially acceptance of those aspects of oneself about which one has felt the most ashamed, embarrassed, discomfited, etc., which certainly the case with a substantial amount of the material originating from my “undergrounds” …
As the saying goes, acceptance of where one is in the present provides the only solid basis for change … to the extent that change is possible … and to the extent that change isn’t possible self-acceptance is useful as well.
