Terrible! We had to turn it off. Very self indulgent and frustrating.
Great acting from Christina Ricci. It is the story of a uni student who gets so depressed and upset and she can't seem to get herself back on track. She eventually goes on drugs to help her.
Definitely not the greatest film. A bit shallow and self indulgent which is a pity as it has a pretty good cast and great performances.
A well thought out movie that deals with the sensitive issue of depression
Really detailed portrayal of a Harvard students gradual disintegration into depression bought on by family problems,relationship issues and workloads. Realistic references to college life, ennui of youth and post-modern nihilism aka Lou Reed who the central character Lizzy relates to strongly. Also an interesting movie in that this movie was made when Prozac was relatively new. Now of course there is a return to the anti-pills solution only for depression. More alarming of course is that Australia is now on par with the US at least in terms of anti-depressant prespriptions and the epidemic of depression. A sensitive, well thought out movie, confronting at times. Filming in black and white adds to the mood and atmosphere of the movie. A must see for anyone who wants or needs to understand more about "depression", the scourge of our modern era
A much neded DVD in to the world of depression, just got a bit monotaneous at times
