One of the best movies of the year. Chirstina Ricci is excellent in this adaption of the novel by the same name. This movie (and the book for that matter) takes you where other stories like Girl Interrupted can't. This movie really gets to the core of depression, how suddenly it can come about and the "doctors" trials of medication. A definite muste see. This is comming from a Bi-Polar Manic-Depressive with a Panic/Anxiety problem who has been treated with such meds as the title allows.

A story about Elizabeth Wurtzel (Christina Ricci) and her emotional battles with family [mother Mrs. Wurtzel (Jessica Lange)], social life [lover Rafe (Jason Biggs)], Dr. Sterling (Anne Heche), etc. Christina has an open scene in the nude, probably the reason for "R". Truly a mental game.

Christina Ricci and Jessica Lange and both outstanding in this film. While taking a 'sobering' look at a truly alarming American issue, it's no wonder this film was largely ignored by a populace obviously too sensitive to the edgy subject matter. Since when did depression, hard work, suffering and difficulty become things that should only be dealt with through medication? With the ever declining popularity of fundamentalist religion, I believe that people are missing an important element in our evolution as a species. That being that it's STILL possible to believe in God, family of all kinds, and the importance of a spiritual groundwork WITHOUT the elements of self-hatred fundamentalism instills in us. Unfortunately it seems that we've yet to reach that kind of 'collective conscious.' People still seem overly pre-occupied with looking at 'God' as something to fear and not as something, or SOMEONE we could be sitting next to or across from at any given moment! Instead, it would seem that 'Chaos' is the rule on this planet. It certainly makes for plenty of great drama! Perhaps, someday that ideal will change. The REAL question is, do we REALLY want it to?
