Critic's Review Heading
Good
The title of Girl, Interrupted bears a singular subject, but audiences will likely walk out of James Mangold's adaptation of Susanna Kaysen's memoir thinking of two "girls"--Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie, who further cement their reputations as two of the most gifted young screen actresses today. It's unfortunate, however, that the script often isn't as strong as they are. But what is fortunate is that their performances more than compensate for the shortcomings in the writing department. Girl, Interrupted is ultimately a film, underrealized; but its desired emotional effect is more than adequately achieved.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In 1967, after a session with a psychiatrist she'd never seen before, Susanna Kaysen (Winona Ryder) was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder-an affliction with symptoms so ambiguous almost any adolescent girl might qualify-and sent to a renowned New England psychiatric hospital where she spent the next two years in a ward for teenage girls.

There, Susanna loses herself in an OZ-like nether world of seductive and disturbed young women: among them Lisa (Angelina Jolie), a charming sociopath who stages a disastrous escape with Susanna, Daisy (Brittany Murphy), a pampered girl with a predilection for rotisserie chicken, and Polly, a remarkably kind burn victim. Ultimately, assisted by the hospital's head psychiatrist, Dr. Wick (Vanessa Redgrave), and a no-nonsense ward nurse, Valerie (Whoopi Goldberg), Susanna, like Dorothy, resolves to leave this Oz and reclaim her life.
