Movie Review: Quitting

Remarkable story of a heroin addict
Jia Honsheng was a movie star in China until drug addiction derailed his life and his career. Quitting is all about his downward spiral and eventual recovery, but the specifics of his experience could stand in for a much larger story about the clash of cultures.
