I want to talk about movies this evening. I absolutely adore movies and films. I like the way you can totally forget about the outside world when you immerse yourself in a good movie. For me, the message and details of certain movies stay on with me for years. Recently I think I have seen such a movie which will undoubtedly linger in my mind for a long time.
If you were to list some of the best movies depicting mental illness I am sure many of you might list films such as The Soloist or A Beautiful Mind.
I am adding a new movie to my list, an independent film called Take Shelter.
Christina Bruni, the community leader for SchizophreniaConnection, was able to get an interview with the writer and director of this award winning new film. This is a not to be missed interview as this director and film will surely receive universal acclaim.
In addition, on our anxiety site I wrote my own personal review of Take Shelter. Please come to read it...I would love your opinion on the movie if you have seen it.
My question for you tonight is: What is/are your favorite movie(s) depicting mental illness?
Hope you are all having a good week. I am eager to read your posts and comments. Keep them coming!
