Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
The crazy thing is, you're not crazy.
Set in the changing world of the late 1960s, "Girl, Interrupted" is the searing true story of Susanna Kaysen (Winona Ryder), a young woman who finds herself at a renowned mental institution for troubled young women, where she must choose between the world of people who belong on the inside -- like the seductive and dangerous Lisa (Angelina Jolie) -- or the often difficult world of reality on the outside.
Hey, I just met you...
And this is crazy...
So here's my number...
So call me maybe!
Please, if you're this crazy...
Don't call me baby...
Sorry, I don't know where that came from...
This is like the chick flick version of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. Only this isn't a chick flick...though it has a lot of chicks in it.
This has to be one of the most awesome casts ever. I mean, just LOOK AT THIS CAST: Winona Ryder, Angelina Jolie, Whoopi Goldberg, Angela Bettis, Clea Duvall, Jared Leto, Jeffrey Tambor, Vanessa Redgrave, Brittany Murphy, Elisabeth Moss, FUCKING CASTIEL FROM SUPERNATURAL!!!
If you didn't realize by now, the acting is excellent, especially from Jolie who shocked the…
If Jared Leto asks you to run away with him to Canada, you go with him, Susanna. You just go.
I just really have a soft spot for movies about mental illness and mental hospitals. And Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie are goddesses in this movie. That is all.
Despite being set in the 1960s, there isn’t a second in Girl, Interrupted where it feels like anything other than a Generation X movie. Two hours of self-pity and cynicism? It must be the 90s. But I love Gen-X filmmakers like Gregg Araki too much to be dismissive of this period. If I was to take issue with the slacker era then I’d start by saying that, at their worst, these films have such a severe lack of direction and purpose that the characters do little to earn any form of respect.
With what can only be described as a female dream cast, Girl, Interrupted fancies itself as something more than a mindless wander into nihilistic abyss and the key…
I have mixed feeling about this movie.
I am going to say about the two beautiful ladies in this movie
Winona Ryder she was just perfect for this role she played with her madness inside her.
Angelina Jolie You deserved the Oscar.
It’s pretty ironic really that I watched this in two parts. What with me being a girl and all. Girl…interrupted. Bad jokes aside, this was one of the most table-turning films I have ever had the pleasure of being drawn into. I did have my doubts. 90s Winona and Angelina, an all-girl mental institution…it just felt like the kind of all round piece of cinema that I would usually swerve into a metaphorical bush just to get away from. But for some reason, the evening of the 5th December caught me off guard. Must have been a full moon or something. And so off I skipped into the alien land, following the ever-present words of the Interstellar teaser trailer: make…
This movie was really intense. If any of you have seen "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" then this film is really similar but more like... the girl-version of that. I'd actually go as far as to say that they go hand-in-hand. Most of the characters are represented in both movies.
I really can't say which one I like better though, they were both great and very intense.
The movie follows a young woman (portrayed by Ryder) named Susanna Kaysen (who is also the author of the book of which the movie is based on) during a year of her life that she spends in a psych ward. It illustrates the life in a psychiatric hospital and talks about the…
still as good as the first time i watched this
queens slay as usual
a very well acted, slow moving, slow film of slow and intimate slowness.
YES. Awesome plot and Jolie is actually good in this. Great acting.
Wish Jolie would do more films like this...
If you go through the other movies I've seen and rated 5 stars.. You'd wonder why I'd have a movie like this up among my favorites, especially since I'm only a 17 year old guy in high school. Well, I can honestly say this is one of my favorite movies of all time. Originally I had read the book written by Susanna Kaysen out of pure curiosity. After reading the book all I could do was try and imagine what it must have been like to be an 18 year old who is scared for their future. Oh wait... I can relate! (Just not with the part where she goes to a mental hospital for two years).
So back to…
sucks to be her
Angelina Jolie can take my soul I don't carw
A fantastic adaptation of a book I haven't read. Angelina jolie is definitely a scene stealer. A cherished first watch with this one
[after his parents have left, thinking he is ill] "They bought it. Incredible! One of the worst performances of my…
I'm a psychology major hoping to become a filmmaker, so I've always been interested in the depiction of this subject…
