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…
A fantastic adaptation of a book I haven't read. Angelina jolie is definitely a scene stealer. A cherished first watch with this one
“I know what it’s like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can’t. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside.”
I had stuck in my head for the whole day today the song 'How to fight loneliness' and I thought it was a great time to rewatch this film. I think I didn't like it as much as the first time but it's still good. *writing this while listening how to fight loneliness for 100th time*
Girl, Interrupted gives you an interesting look into a person struggling with a mental disease. Winona Ryder gives one of the best performances I have ever seen. Angelina Jolie was just as stellar, but Ryder really stole the spotlight. Though it may be similar to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, this film really gives you an insight into what mental illness is, and how it is still relevant today. Girl, Interrupted is an amazing film that truly shows you what battling mental illness is like.
Watch this as a preteen (Middle school), and I thought Wow this is Impactful, and for awhile I said (and thought) it was my favorite movie. then years went by and I started to hate Jolie in most of her movies, but I always told myself at least there's this role. However the point is, I forgot what this movie is about (gone the way of Sahara and the Time Machine). Will I check it again? Probably not! At least the memory of greatness lives on, and sometimes that's enough to keep you safe. (Knowing that Jolie can act)
James mangold's girl interrupted is overall a very good film its the girls version of one flew over the cuckoos nest but other than boys and girls what's the difference between both films for me I cared about the characters in one flew over the cuckoos nest I didn't care for the characters in this film though anjelina jolie delivered her best on screen performance.
Girl, Interrupted? More like, why did I INTERRUPT MY LIFE TO WATCH THIS MEDIOCRE MOVIE???
(no, but really it was decent, nothing too spectacular though. Solid performance from Angie)
"Don't get too comfortable."
"Do not drop anchor here."
"Crazy isn't being broken, or swallowing a dark secret. It's you, or me, amplified."
I could almost review this movie just using quotes. This isn't a review that's going to make sense, because it's one of those movies I've seen too many times, taken too much to heart. Mychael Danna's score (I'm listening again as I write this) is an immediate blanket of memories about where I was the first time I heard it, was introduced to these characters and their stories, and what a gut punch it all was.
This movie messed me up in my 20s - in good ways and bad ways - and I was already quite…
I always have been reluctant to see this movie because of the expectations I had of it. The nice thing of expectations is that they easily can be proven wrong. This film is from an acting performance that good that the story itself, the life and goings in a psychiatric hospital in the 1960's seen from the eyes of Wynona Ryder, is of second importance. Angelina Jolie played a total lunatic and got an Oscar for that. I myself found the acting performance of Wynona Ryder even better playing the girl who's life, based on a true story, was interrupted for the 18 months she was hospitalised.

I'm a psychology major hoping to become a filmmaker, so I've always been interested in the depiction of this subject…
