New International Feature highlights the harsh realities of addiction.

A Million Little Pieces is the adaptation of the notorious 2003 bestseller with the same name by James Frey, which offered a visceral account of the author’s time at a rehabilitation centre in the 1990s.

An alcoholic and a drug addict, 23 year-old James has two options: treatment or death.

After waking up on a plane with a smashed up face and no memory of the past few weeks, he heads to rehab where he discovers much more than detox and therapy. As James endures the white-knuckle journey of mending his broken body, he heals his broken soul by connecting with other kindred spirits who also yearn and fight for a better life.

A Million Little Pieces is the latest film from acclaimed director Sam Taylor-Johnson and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson in a tour de force performance. Based on the best-selling book by James Frey with a screenplay by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Sam Taylor-Johnson, the film also stars Billy Bob Thornton, Juliette Lewis, Giovanni Ribisi, Charlie Hunnam and Odessa Young.

While A Million Little Pieces doesn’t hold back from displaying the harsh and horrible realities of addiction, it is not only a study of addiction, but also of recovery, love, friendship and hope. It aims to offer a realistic look at how a young man pulls himself back from the brink of self-destruction.

A Million Little Pieces is distributed by Filmfinity (Pty) Ltd. and will make its official on-screen debut at the Johannesburg Film Festival (21 November at Ster-Kinekor Sandton at 5pm and at Rosebank Nouveau on 23 November at 9pm). The film will be released in South African cinemas on 7 February 2020.
