Movie Info

Pretty and privileged Deborah (Kathleen Quinlan) is, at the age of 16, a borderline schizophrenic who spends most of her waking hours in a bizarre fantasy realm. After a failed suicide attempt, she lands in a mental institution, where the hostile environment threatens to destabilize her condition even further. It's only through the focused attention of the sympathetic Dr. Fried (Bibi Andersson) that Deborah is gradually able to distinguish between dreams and reality again.

    A beautiful, crazy, dramatic film, and I really loved it.

    The female version of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, except more patient on the couch exploring her issues with a nicer female doctor scenes. Roger Corman produced this psychological illness drama.
