Synopsis
Heddy Honigmann and John Appel offer compelling glimpses into the nature of addiction in this pair of documentaries. In "Emoticons," troubled girls turn compulsively to computer games and chat rooms to assuage their difficult feelings. "There Goes My Heart" follows four aging Dutch drug addicts who live in the safety of a group home where they receive their drugs for free -- and where they sink further into isolation and addiction.
