‘Stay Awake’ Review: Wyatt Oleff and Fin Argus Shine In Fantastic Addiction Drama

Brothers Ethan (Wyatt Oleff) and Derek (Fin Argus) have gotten used to taking care of their mother Michelle (Chrissy Metz) and her prescription drug addiction. Whenever Ethan comes home, he walks through the door warily, knowing it’s entirely possible he’ll find his mother blacked out from her pills. Ethan and Derek have had to handle this situation so many times before, it’s become a tedious routine. The pair try to keep their mother awake by loudly singing songs and having her guess what movies they’re from as they drive to the hospital, where they’ll all stay until morning. When Michelle drives them to get breakfast the next morning, she doesn’t bother apologizing. She knows this probably won’t be the last time, and her sons certainly don’t want to hear false promises once more.
