Girl, Interrupted 1999

From Amazon: Based on Susanna Kaysen's acclaimed journal-memoir, Girl, Interrupted bears inevitable resemblance to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and pale comparison to that earlier classic is impossible to avoid. The mental institution settings of both films guarantee a certain degree of déjà vu and at least one Oscar winner (in this case, Angelina Jolie), since playing a loony is any actor's dream gig. Unfortunately, director James Mangold seems to have misplaced the depth and delicacy of his underrated debut, Heavy, despite a great deal of earnest effort by everyone involved. It's easy to see why Winona Ryder...

She is put in a mental institution during the tumultuous times of the 1960's when people were trying to find themselves while these women were trying to escape from doing just that. The "cast...

Girl, Interrupted Movie Review by Movie Addict (5/26/2008)

Seeing this film reminds me of everything that is wrong with adults. They confuse spontaneity and originality and discovering yourself with mental illness. Act out a little in school, and it's ADHD. Act out at home, and it's bring on the Prozac.

Winona Ryder was incredible as the teen who was really just being a...

Girl, Interrupted Movie Review by Renee (3/5/2006)

Angelina Jolie MADE this film. If she hadn't been in it, it would have faltered. She may be a supporting character but it is by far her most poignant and rousing performance she's done in a film to date - other than her even more remarkable turn as Gia Marie Carangie in the film 'Gia'.

Angie became a star with this film,...
