Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted.

''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.''

Based on writer Susanna Kaysen's account of her 18-month stay at a mental hospital in the 1960s.

A brilliant exploration into the boundaries of reality set within an all-girl mental ward. Packed full of emotion and compelling performances. For my money Ryder, Jolie and Murphy all hit their career best with this film. However, It would be nice if they could prove me wrong.

Angelina Jolie is scary good in this film. Winona Ryder will capture your heart, and the rest of the cast will pull in you. This true story is amazingly accurate to the book. I would recommend this film to any one who is interested in history or mental health.

Susanna is depressed and directionless after finishing high school in the late 1960's. A suicide attempt lands her in Claymore, a mental institution. She befriends the band of troubled women in her ward (Georgina the pathological liar, the sexually abused Daisy, the burn victim Polly) but falls under the hypnotic sway of Lisa, the wildest and most hardened of the bunch. Will Susanna "drop anchor" at Claymore and perpetually act out like Lisa, or will she finally pull her mind together and leave institutional life behind?

"First viewing - June 11th After dinner I had enough time before bed to finally watch this film. Man Angelina Jolie knocks it out of the park with her performance…I fully support her Oscar win. The rest of the cast does a wonderful job too, but she steals every scene she’s in. I was occasionally reminded of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, which I guess can’t be easily avoided given the setting. The story was interesting and I was engaged throughout, but I felt like something was missing t"

""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." - Susanna Kaysen Maybe everyone out there is a liar. And maybe the whole world is stupid, and ignorant. But I'd rather be in it." - Susanna Kaysen"
