Overview

Adapted from Kaysen's popular memoir, GIRL, INTERRUPTED is handled with extreme sensitivity by director James Mangold (HEAVY, COPLAND). Winona Ryder stars as Susana, a troubled teenager whose confused attempt at suicide lands her in a mental hospital. Once there, she meets an odd assortment of characters, including Lisa (Angelina Jolie), who at first mesmerizes Susana with her uninhibited demeanor. The pair form a tight bond, but that connection is threatened when Lisa begins to spiral even further out of control. Ryder and Jolie's intense performances are just one of many reasons to watch this picture.

Synopsis:
Based on the autobiographical novel by Susana Kaysen, GIRL, INTERRUPTED is the story of Susana (Rider), a confused teen who attempts suicide and is promptly passed off by her uncaring parents to a mental hospital. There, she meets an assortment of characters including Georgina, her L. Frank Baum loving roommate, Daisy, a laxative junkie, and Lisa (Jolie), a charismatic sociopath. At first, Susana is almost fools herself into thinking that there's something wrong with her, as she begins to identify and bond with her new inmates. In particular, Susana is fascinated by Lisa and her totally uninhibited behavior, and the two quickly become close. Things begin to fall apart, however, when Lisa's behavior becomes more erratic and disturbing, causing a rift between the two friends and a long delayed bout of self-discovery by Susana.
