Movie Info

Recently released from a psychiatric hospital, Elizabeth (Anna Schafer) returns to her Los Angeles apartment where she lives with her fiancé, Grant (Ryan Vincent). With the guidance of her new psychiatrist, Dr. Bowman (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), and the unfaltering support of Grant, Elizabeth works at regaining control of her mental stability and her life as she begins to plan their wedding. Struggling to navigate daily voices, hallucinations, anxiety, failing medications and her judgmental, unsupportive mother, Carol (Kathleen Quinlan), Elizabeth fears that Grant will leave her as she clings to hope that love will truly conquer all--even mental illness.

Critic Reviews for Elizabeth Blue

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

There are times when "Elizabeth Blue" drifts into "edu-tainment" territory, though the intent to unflinchingly reveal the struggle of mental illness is sincere.

Oct 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Elizabeth inspires empathy, but it often feels like we're being told to feel a certain way by being shown so much rather than being allowed to naturally warm up to her.

Sep 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Despite Anna Schafer's gripping performance in the lead role, this deeply personal effort is too narratively sluggish to sustain attention.

Sep 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Empathetic and yet ultimately too draggy to elicit much engagement with its paper-thin story, "Elizabeth Blue" proves at once well-intentioned and inert.

And yet there's always a feeling that something is off in Elizabeth Blue. Some aspects are almost too idyllic and leave the audience asking certain questions that only grow more and more as the film progresses.

Oct 30, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's weepy nonsense that plays up the film's worst melodramatic tendencies.
