Girl, Interrupted

We spent the last of the Blockbuster coupons that came with our DVD player
last night on Girl,
. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it too much, but was pleasantly
surprised; it was an excellent film. A sort of more-hopeful girl-cast One
Flew Over The Cukoo’s Nest
featuring an Audrey Hepburn-looking Winona
Ryder, it mixes pathos, humor, madness, and hope. Amusingly, the description
on the back of the Blockbuster box starts out with this sentence: “A young
woman is put into a mental institution after she commits suicide.”
