“Stay Awake” is a muted, gentle drama portraying the struggles of two brothers dealing with their depressed, self-destructive mother, an addict. As they repeatedly drive her to the emergency room after overdoses, the toll on their own lives becomes evident. The film subtly highlights the merciless American society that prioritizes the rich, leaving struggling families like theirs to navigate a broken system. “Stay Awake” offers a powerful look at the ripple effects of opioid addiction and resilience in the face of adversity.
