Adapted from Kaysen's popular memoir, GIRL, INTERRUPTED is handled with extreme sensitivity by director James Mangold (HEAVY, COPLAND.) Winona Ryder stars as Susana, a troubled teenager whose confused attempt at suicide lands her in a mental hospital. Once there, she meets an odd assortment of characters, including Lisa (Angelina Jolie), who at first mesmerizes Susana with her uninhibited demeanor. The pair form a tight bond, but that connection is threatened when Lisa begins to spiral even further out of control. Ryder and Jolie's intense performances are just one of many reasons to watch this picture.

Pros: Wynonna Ryder     Cons: Sappy, trite, overly dramatic     I just got back from seeing Girl, Interrupted and wanted to write my review while my thoughts were still fresh.

However, she has the tendancy to play many of her characters in a sappy overly dramatic way, as if she's in a high school drama production.   …
