Ratings & Reviews

  • The performances in Girl, Interrupted resonate, but the movie does not.

  • Mangold ultimately delivers the same film any number of other Hollywood journeyman could've made from this material, and the results are predictable and stale.

  • A rare movie, one that manages to be both quiet and electrifying, touching and unnerving. But it is not a great movie, even though its stars deserve for it to be.
