Sarah Travis (Linda Blair) is an average teenager who is introduced to drinking alcohol at local parties. As a means of coping with problems in her life, most notably her parents’ divorce, Sarah starts to drink regularly and tries to keep her addiction a secret, even from her boyfriend (Mark Hamill). Eventually, Sarah’s increasingly severe drinking almost leads to tragedy, and she enters Alcoholics Anonymous, beginning an ongoing struggle to get sober and stay that way.
An all-star cast give heartrending performances in this riveting movie that’ll take you through the highs and lows of a girl battling her relentless addiction. Teenage drinkers like Sarah are often alcoholics at 12 and 13 and some even sooner. They’re raiding their parents liquor cabinets and bribing older friends to buy it for them. Sarah T. – Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic takes both a shocking and compassionate look at one girl’s story as she falls through the cracks and makes her way to rock bottom. Blair and Mark Hamill are terrific in this hard-hitting television film.
