Based on the autobiographical novel by Susanna Kayson chronicling her time spent in a mental institution following a suicide attempt, Girl, Interrupted is not quite what you'd expect; namely "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest For Chicks". It's true that the story is dominated by Jo...

Sometimes the only way to stay sane is to go a little crazy
Good Film! It was a very well made film with some terrific acting. Angelina Jolie in probably her best role as an actress won her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in that year. Good plot although a little too slow f...

Surprised by the low critic ratings. I for one thought this was a really good film. Solid story, good characters, and wonderful performances from Ryder and Jolie who won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. I recommend it!

Although it boasts a killer script, adapted from the memoir by Susanna Kaysen, Girl, Interrupted's iconic female cast is what makes this film so riveting. Winona Ryder as Kaysen, Angelina Jolie in her scene-stealing (and Oscar-winning ) role of Lisa, Brittany Murphy (a humongous...

A mostly by the book depiction of an insane asylum and those that reside in it, namely a suicidal recent high school graduate (Winona Ryder) and an unpredictable, power-hungry manipulator (Angelina Jolie). The only thing that elevates this thing above standard Lifetime melodrama ...

Susanna: [narrating] Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60`s. Or maybe I was just a girl.......... interrupted.
