Helen DVD Review

Helen DVD Review

Synopsis: On the outside, Helen has it all – a loving family and a successful career – but when her suppressed mental illness resurfaces, the world crumbles around her. Crippled by depression, Helen finds solace through her friendship with Mathilda, a kindred spirit struggling with bipolar disorder. Starring Ashley Judd, Goran Visnjic and Lauren Lee Smith.

Review: This film was especially poignant for me, as I have a loved one with extreme mental illness.  Its honestly hard to watch at times, because it does do such a great job of hitting real mental illness on the head.  The isolation that you feel and the rejection that you can experience from your "loved" ones.    No one understands what you're going through.  Fortunately, in this film Ashley Judd finds another person in her life that is experiencing mental illness through bipolar disorder.  The two strive to find some semblance of life together.

This movie is very emotional and fantastic.  I highly recommend this to everyone, whether you or someone you know is mentally ill or you'd just like to learn more about the realities of it, while watching a great quality drama, this film is for you.

Interest Range: Drama
