James Woods (Best Seller) and Sean Young (Fatal Instinct) star in the dramatic cautionary tale The Boost. Living the high life – figuratively and literally – married couple Lenny and Linda Brown (Woods and Young) will see their fast-lane L.A. lifestyle come crashing down around them when the real estate market takes a sudden downturn. Unemployed and in debt, Lenny and Linda’s hedonistic lifestyle and casual drug use soon spiral out of control as they careen toward an abyss. “The Boost,” wrote film critic Roger Ebert, “is “one of the most convincing and horrifying portraits of drug addiction I’ve ever seen.”” The Boost, directed by Harold Becker (The Onion Field) from a screenplay by Darryl Ponicsan (based on the Benjamin Stein book Ludes: A Ballad of the Drug and the Dream), features supporting performances by Steven Hill (TV’s Law & Order), John Kapelos (The Breakfast Club), Amanda Blake (TV’s Gunsmoke) and Grace Zabriskie (TV’s Twin Peaks).
