    How mature.

    Okay, let me broaden the description a bit more:

    - Movies about troubled teenagers
    - Drug addiction
    - Mental instability
    - Depression

    Examples:

    - Speak
    - Go Ask Alice
    - The Basketball Diaries
    - Requiem for a Dream
    - Bully
    - Kids
    - Panic in Needle Park

    Those are the movies I have so far.

    Any serious responses/recommendations?

    A very realistic movie about drugs and it shows how hard it is for a couple of poor junkies that want to quit, but gets little or no help from a fucked up system.

    I got a lot more sympathy for addicts after seeing that film.

    THE ESCAPIST (2008)

    Official Website: http://www.escapistthemovie.com
    Frank Perry is a lifer; in prison for the rest of his natural born days. He’s never had a problem with that: he did the crime; he’ll do the time. Until now. He receives a letter telling him that his only and much loved daughter is critically ill following an overdose. He knows that he must see her and to do that he’ll have to escape. But he can’t do it alone. A motley crew of younger associates are assembled to enact his plan: Lenny Drake, Brodie and Viv Baptista. As they prepare to break out Frank’s focus is distracted by the arrival of a young con James Lacey – a reminder of days long lost. As the new kid on the block Lacey also attracts the sadistic attention of Tony, the drug-addict brother of wing-king Rizza. Personality conflicts puts the escape in jeopardy and Frank is forced to find the energy and courage of the man he one was.

    Director: Rupert Wyatt
    Release Date: 20th of June 2008
