Set in the changing world of the late 1960s, GIRL, INTERRUPTED is the searing true story of Susanna Kaysen (two-time Oscar® nominee Winona Ryder), a young woman who finds herself at a renowned mental institution for troubled young women, where she must choose between the world of people who belong on the inside-like the seductive and dangerous Lisa (Angelina Jolie) or the often difficult world of reality on the outside.
Susanna's prescribed "short rest" from a psychiatrist she had met only once becomes a strange, unknown journey into Alice's Wonderland, where she spends nearly a year on the ward. Based on the best-selling book of the same name and directed by celebrated Cop Land director James Mangold, the film features tour de force performances by today's most critically acclaimed young actors, including Ryder and Jolie. GIRL, INTERRUPTED also stars Jared Leto, Brittany Murphy and Clea Duvall, as well as Oscar® winners Whoopi Goldberg and Vanessa Redgrave.
