Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream is not a bad start  - particularly Ellen
Burstyn's character Mrs Goldfarb.

Subject:    [SCREEN-L] films dealing with women and addiction

I have a student who is trying to unearth film texts that address women
and drug addiction (or at least depict women addicted to drugs).
Particularly, she'd love to find some films that address women's
addiction and withdrawal from drugs prescribed for an illness, but texts
dealing with "street drugs" for recreational purposes would be helpful
too.  Any ideas would be appreciated.
