Requiem for a Dream

Everyone wants something, and quick. Ty and Harry want to get lots of money fast. Marion wants to open a store where her clothing can be sold. Sarah Goldfarb wants to fit into her red dress to be on a game show. Ty and Harry start dealing heroin. Harry wants to fund Marion's store and clothing line with the profits. No diet works quick enough, so Sarah starts taking "pills"- uppers then downers so she can sleep. Addiction follows close behind for everyone.

Quotes

Sara Goldfarb: I'm somebody now, Harry. Everybody likes me. Soon, millions of people will see me and they'll all like me. I'll tell them about you, and your father, how good he was to us. Remember? It's a reason to get up in the morning. It's a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. It's a reason to smile. It makes tomorrow all right. What have I got Harry, hm? Why should I even make the bed, or wash the dishes? I do them, but why should I? I'm alone. Your father's gone, you're gone. I got no one to care for. What have I got, Harry? I'm lonely. I'm old.
Harry Goldfarb: You got friends, Ma.
Sara Goldfarb: Ah, it's not the same. They don't need me. I like the way I feel. I like thinking about the red dress and the television and you and your father. Now when I get the sun, I smile.
