Leaving Las Vegas is one of my favourite movies. It is about two lives which cross paths; two people who really need each other, they just don't know it yet.
Nicolas Cage's character, Ben, comes to Vegas to escape his life. Mainly through alcohol. Elisabeth Shue plays a prostitute struggling to pay the rent, dealing with an abusive pimp. Their meeting changes their lives.
It is a love story. A tragic one.
I have been to Vegas several times now and like Ben's and Sera's story,
