A Million Little Pieces (2019)



Critic Consensus: While solidly cast and competently helmed, A Million Little Pieces amounts to little more than a well-intentioned but unpersuasive echo of a deeply problematic memoir.

Movie Info

At the age of 23, James Frey woke up on a plane to find his front teeth knocked out and his nose broken. He had no idea where the plane was headed nor any recollection of the past two weeks. An alcoholic for ten years and a drug addict for three, he checked into a treatment facility shortly after landing. There, he found much more than traditional treatment. He found similar broken souls yearning and fighting for a better life. This is a story of recovery and love, a story of friendship and hope. This is an account of his six weeks in rehab.

Critic Reviews for A Million Little Pieces

All Critics (48) | Top Critics (22)

The Taylor-Johnsons have made a well-meaning version of a story about addiction, but given what we know about James Frey, A Million Little Pieces doesn't feel like enough.

Top Critic

As a stand-alone work of cinema fiction, "A Million Little Pieces" is an effective blunt instrument of a film - a rough-edged, unvarnished, painfully accurate portrayal of addiction and rehabilitation.

December 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A petulant, boastful, and not very noteworthy variation of a story that plenty of films, documentary and fiction, have told before, but with more insight or panache.

December 6, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

An underwhelming addiction story that feels not just familiar, but more focused on the bad-boy swagger of its main character than his actual recovery.

December 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Yet another ruin-and-rehab tale, one that initially tantalizes then flatly disappoints.

December 5, 2019 | Full Review…

James' inner life and his experience is made up of a million little pieces, but in this flat film we get just one.
