Cult movie heroine Winona Ryder starred in the film of the best-selling book by Susanna Kaysen, adapted and directed by the creator of Copland and Heavy. Girl, Interrupted charts the experiences of eighteen-year-old Susanna Kaysen as she is suddenly – and without warning – incarcerated in a mental hospital, then made to spend the next two years of her life in a ward reserved for teenage girls, within an institution renowned for its famous clientele: Sylvia Plath, Robert Lowell, James Taylor, Ray Charles. Mangold’s adaptation of Kaysen’s extraordinary memoir is unsettling but unflinching, funny but deeply poignant.
