Prozac Nation Reviews
[font=Century Gothic]"Prozac Nation" is a self-important movie about a self-centered person. Removing the narration would have helped in moving around some of the focus. To make matters worse, the movie is based on Elizabeth Wurtzel's own experiences but provides a decided lack of insight into mental illness or anything else for that matter. [/font]
[font=Century Gothic]Christina Ricci gives a wooden performance in the lead and sadly might be incapable of delivering sarcasm.(Zooey Deschanel would have been a vast improvement.) Surprisingly, Jessica Lange disappoints in a completely over-the-top performance. But there is fine support supplied by Michelle Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Jason Biggs and Anne Heche.[/font]
The movie was good. The acting was great. I would like to see more of the main character's life, but I guess I will have to read the book.
I can see how this movie can be inspirational and touching to a lot of people. It goes against many of my core beliefs. I do not believe in therapy or in Rx drug use. Life is suffering. Get used to it.
I would recommend this movie to anyone who thinks they might be alone in their insanity.
