Critic Reviews for Helen
In roles that could have devolved into arias of melodrama, the cast never overplays its hand, fighting the omnipresent melancholy in small ways rather than large.
Two hours of knife-wielding and shrieking later, nothing significant or profound is gleaned...
Unless you're prepared to be needlessly drowned in another woman's problems for nearly two hours, stay away.
Audience Reviews for Helen
A very depressing movie about deep depression, as expected. These kinds of movies are never fun to watch....Ashley Judd did a very convincing job.
Depression is a depressing subject. As such, this is a depressing movie. The actors did a good job, and the music was outstanding.
"I was prepared to fight. I wasn't prepared to lose" -Helen Ashley Judd provides a strong performance as "Helen" a loving wife, mother, talented musician, and professor who becomes strangled by severe depression. Her mental illness progresses over a period of time and is portrayed in quite a realist way...showing the isolation that she imposes on herself. "You remind me of who I used to be" -Helen
