Girl, Interrupted

There are those movies that change you forever. Whenever you think about them, you smile, shed a tear, or in this case, even cringe. But these movies are worth the emotional connection, and Girl, Interrupted is no exception.

The movie follows Susanna Kaysen (Wynona Ryder) who is rebelling against her cookie-cutter family in the ’60s. Her rebellion leads to an 18-month stay at a mental institution for women. There she encounters a list of characters, seductive Lisa (Angelina Jolie, who won an Oscar for this portrayal), nervous Daisy (Brittany Murphy), and guiding nurse Valerie (Whoopi Goldberg). Susanna is trying to prove her sanity, and while the audience can see an obvious difference between her and the other patients, Susanna is not normal.

This movie is cringe-worthy, intriguing, sad, and just so full of emotions. It’s a female version of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest that will leave you wanting much more at the end.

  1. I absolutely LOVE this movie. This was my friend and I’s go-to for sleepovers. Weird, I know. Most girls would go towards sappy rom-coms, but not us haha. I think it’s one of Angelina Jolie’s best perfermances ever. And Winona Ryder. Not a huge fan of her, but love her in this movie. The book is really great too, if you’ve never read it 🙂
