Days of Wine and Roses is the acclaimed 1962 Oscar winning romance classic directed by comedy maestro Blake Edwards (Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Pink Panther, 10. The Party, Blind Date). Jack Lemmon stars as the boozing, corporate-ready Joe Clay; who could be considered a 'heavy social drinker.' He accidentally meets the girl of his dreams Kirsten Arnesen (Lee Remick) during a company function. They date, become friends, and he convinces her to take a drink, which is something she's never done before. Before long, she starts to enjoy drinking as much as Joe. Viewers watch as their high-flying lifestyle slowly degrades as Joe's increased drinking begins to affect his job and his home life, and both begin a downward spiral. They first try to 'dry out' together, but that fails. Joe is finally confronted by Alcoholics Anonymous, finally gets himself on the road to drying out for good, but still can't convince his wife to rejoin the family and reality and turn herself around.moreless
