“Was I ever crazy, maybe. Or maybe life is. Crazy isn’t being broken, or swallowing a dark secret. It is you or me, amplified. If you have ever told a lie and enjoyed it. If you ever wished you could be a child, forever. They were not perfect, but they were my friends.” People are just precious people, without all the labels.
This movie is way out there and yet right up my alley. I really REALLY do not like the labels that we put on people. It keeps them imprisoned instead of letting people find themselves so they can shine.
This movie is a wonderful example of the destruction of labels. Anyone who can see past a label can see hope.
Since this blog is about chronic illness and most who have been chronically ill have at one time or another been called crazy, I think this is relevant. It becomes even more relevant when we can move past what anyone else says about us and think for ourselves
Winona Ryder and Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie are the certifiable stars of Claymoore Hospital’s South Bell ward in this wry adaptation of Susanna Kaysen’s best-selling memoir.
This movie will only be available for free as a Prime Member until May 31st. So, if you are a Prime Member on Amazon you might want to catch this for free.
It is NOT suitable for children.
The movie is a bit rough but if you will stick with it, tremendous insights can be had. Grab a cup of calming tea and hang on for the ride.
