If you have ever tried to help a friend/ family with schizophrenia…
….then you will relate to this. Shown from the point of view of a woman watching her friend spiral down the cycle of schizophrenia. Juno Temple does an amazing job at showing her confusion at first, then the different stages of trying to get him the help he needs, and sometimes wanting to give up.
Simon Pegg really stands out in this movie, he captures the art of portraying the thoughts that inevitably lead a schizophrenic to going off their meds (anosognosia), the charm they display to make you think it’s alright (they can be so damned convincing) and then the absolute random outbursts of hate, violence and/or rambling.
It isn’t the most quickpaced movie, but it is a great story. It is hard to fit the entire dimensions of what a relationship with this particular mental illness is like into a movie, but it is definitely a glimpse. And they only touched on it a little, but it is enough to show that there are severe problems in the mental health department in the US. Anyone with a sense of empathy will take something away from this movie.
It is worth noting that the timeline of this can be hard to follow. And it might seem like he is ‘suddenly crazy’, where in actuality a fair amount of time has passed.
I am however, disappointed that they felt the need to put Alexandra Daddario so much in the forefront. Don’t get me wrong, I like her and she did a good job. But her character was not that important. Certainly not enough to put her on the cover. And the confusion of their choice to push her as such a main character in advertising, was distracting.
Summary; A hard story to tell but it is done well by all actors involved. If you like that sort of thing, give it a watch!
