Girl, Interrupted

Rated 3.0 Winona Ryder turns in her first fully realized performance as Susanna Kaysen, a young writer incarcerated in an East Coast mental institution in the late ‘60s for the “illness” of “promiscuity,” Angelina Jolie sets fire to the screen as unrepentant inmate Lisa, and director James Mangold artfully keeps all the balls in the air—until his source material forces a very ugly fall, as a vile, Reaganoid denouement finds Kaysen betraying her sisters and herself.
