Girl Interrupted

Post by Doreen Peri » December 21st, 2008, 10:48 pm

I saw this film for the second time tonight.

Angelina Jolie does a fine performance.

Anybody seen it? What did you think?

I could see it again. Not many films can I say I could watch 3x.

I love this movie. So hard.

"Now what kind of a tree can you be, Janet, down there on the floor? "
"I'm a fucking shrub, all right? "

"You chased a bottle of aspirin with a bottle of vodka."
"I had a headache."

"When you don't want to feel, death can seem like a dream. But seeing death, really seeing it, makes dreaming about it fucking ridiculous."

Its one of those I don't own or watch that frequently, but I think about it all the time. Hits close to home. I want to read the book, but have never gotten around to it.

I know. I want to read the book too!

You're right. Hard hitting for sure. And very memorable. Sticks with you. Watching it tonight, I remembered almost every scene and I saw it the first time several years ago.

Great lines you quoted.

I was really impressed with Jolie's performance. I haven't seen her in many movies. I want to see more of her films, also.

Winona Ryder also did a fine acting job.

Happy Holidays, bohonato!
