Angelina is a Psychotic girl by the name of Lisa. Wow what a performance. This movie didn't just entertain me, but it made me think of how many people are actually just like the girls in the movie and never even get to a counselor. I had read the book a while before I watched the movie and expected to be disappointed, but was very surprised to find the movie extraordinary. This movie deserves an A!

Here is what the cover has to say:
Two time Oscar-nominee Winona Ryder stars in the fascinating true story of a young woman's life-altering stay at a famous psychiatric hospital in the turbulent late 1960's. Questionably diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, Susanna (Winona Ryder) rebels against the head nurse (Whoopi Goldberg) and top psychiatrist (Vanessa Redgrave), choosing instead to befriend the resident "loonies" - a group of troubled women including the seductively charismatic sociopath Lisa (Angelina Jolie). But Susanna quickly learns if she wants her freedom, she'll have to face the person who terrifies her most of all: herself.
