Audience Reviews for Boy Interrupted
Boy, Interrupted is really one of the most intimate and heartbreaking looks inside mental illness I've seen. Dana, a filmmaker and mother tells the story of her son, Evan who battled Bi-Polar Disorder, and Depression only to end his life at the tender age of 15. So much detail and care went into the film as Dana Perry recounts her son's life in the various treatments centers were he sought help, in the public schools where he overcame his problems and began to excel, and through very gut wrenching interviews with Evan's friends, and family including Dana herself. It is a give in that by the end of the film you will be in tears, as we learn of the last few hours of Evan's life, his legacy, and the family he left behind. For those who enjoy a good documentary then this is a really great one to watch, especially if you have loved ones suffering from mental illness.
