    Best Adaptation of a Novel

    I have never seen an actress do such an accurate job of portraying a character with such complex emotions. Kathleen Quinlan and all of the other cast memebers such as Darlene Craviotto, Bibi Anderson, and all the rest made the world truly understand what it is like to go through a day while battling an illness that lives within the mind. EXQUISITE!!!!!!!!!!!
