What a good movie. I hadn't seen it before but was impressed. My husband enjoyed it too. The more I have seen of Angelina Jolie the more impressive she is.
We don't see enough of Winona Ryder.
really well casted, much better than expected. angelina jolie is just fantastic
good cast and well produced, but a little overwrought for my taste and far too long.
Exceptional!! I thought the cast were all fantastic especially Angelina! A must see!
I couldn't even finish watching this movie it was so bad.....it was definitely a movie of the 90's, over acted and painfully slow
Wonderfully cast, written and acted, a young rich woman is placed into a psychiatric hospital after attempting to harm herself. There she befriends a group of other disturbed young women, who she relates to One being the dominant force to her not wanting to make a recovery. After a year being admitted to this hospital, she escapes and goes into hiding with another psychiatric patient who had been discharged some weeks prior. She witnesses her suicide which disturbs her so much so that she returns to the psychiatric facility. Angelina Jolie is fantastic, so is Winona Ryder and Britney Murphy.
The Girl was sure Interrupted and Wynnona & Angelina did an excellent job of the starring roles in the movie.
A great classic, I remember seeing this as a teenager and falling in love with it. Highly recommended.
Excellent movie - a tear jerker, but a great one. Highly recommended.
A memoir from someone who's been on the inside and as such is a good character study. Not very patronizing explores the frustrations of mental illness from both sides. The genius is following Kaysen's progress from day one through to the other side, making neither the institution or the patient the villian. Jolie is perfect as the bipolar destructive co-dependent friend and foil to Kaysen's recovery.
Great acting. Dialogue a little hard to pick up in places. Winona Ryder is a very under rated actress. Let's hope she gets her life back on the rails and gets the acting roles she deserves.
One fault- her hair style was too neat and stylish throughout-took away from the realism. Jolie was amazing and Vanessa Redgrave, in her small role, shone (as always).
This is one of the most unusual films I've seen but it definitely makes you think about things, and it's not short on drama either.
Well worth watching, very good performances and memorable characters - Angelina Jolie is brilliant as Lisa - no wonder she won an academy award for her role.
Whilst I found this movie to be very confronting with regard to those who suffer from mental health problems I also found this movie helped my understanding and insight into a very much taboo subject. All actors played their parts with realism and empathy.
