This is an amazing series in every respect. The script is excellent, the acting is top notch (William Fitchner's performance, for instance, is stellar), and the storyline is intelligent, deep and complex.

I was hooked from the very first episode. Some say it started out too slowly but unlike some I like that in a show. I appreciate the fact that some stories have so much substance that they must be given the time to unravel at their natural pace.

At first, I was weary of seeing Girl, Interrupted, for fear of it being a chick-flick or another cliche-ridden carbon copy of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". Just 15 minutes into the movie, however, and I realised that this was not the case.

The story is well-crafted, the direction is good, the script is superb- but what really stands out is the acting. The entire cast in "Girl, Interrupted" is nothing short of amazing. This movie was made in 1999, and yet even 7 years later, I must admit that, apart from one or two notable exceptions, no performances come to mind that even come close to those in Girl, Interrupted.

Winona Ryder's somewhat understated performance as… Read more
