Ironweed (1987) DVD5
It's 1938, and American is still struggling through the Great Depression. Francis Phelan, a former major league pitcher, has returned to his hometown of Albany, New York. His traveling companion is Helen Archer, who used to be a singer on the radio. Both are trapped in the grips of severe alcoholism - so much so that they have become disgusting skid row bums, lost in a cloud of fermented grains and grapes. Francis can never forgive himself for an accident involving his infant son. It started him on a path that has lead to his current crippled state. As he confronts his past, his former wife Annie and the remaining children he left behind, everyone wishes that he would clean up and come back. But as with many cast into the grip of addiction, Francis is bound to fail. He may never be free of the ghosts that haunt him.
