There are times when "Elizabeth Blue" drifts into "edu-tainment" territory, though the intent to unflinchingly reveal the struggle of mental illness is sincere.
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.
Despite Anna Schafer's gripping performance in the lead role, this deeply personal effort is too narratively sluggish to sustain attention.
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.
It's weepy nonsense that plays up the film's worst melodramatic tendencies.
For ninety percent of its runtime, Elizabeth Blue is an affecting, heartfelt look at living with schizophrenia.
Drama quietly explores woman's mental illness.
Because Sabella experienced what his character goes through, nothing comes across as mere Hollywood cliché. The tragic events portrayed regrettably happen every day.
This sincere drama about a young woman afflicted with schizophrenia is tedious to watch.
Unlike "Psycho" or "Shutter Island", a realistic and moving depiction of the life of a schizophrenic. It not only succeeds as drama but as a social statement badly needed to educate a public so used to stigmatizing those who are ill.
Captures Elizabeth's schizophrenia in a way as unique as every patient's own condition.
