This film is brutally honest, raw, and yet at times inspiring. I have not seen another film tackle this subject in such an unflinching and realistic manner. There's no fabricated drama here for the sake of conforming to Hollywood standards. The sometimes shaky, nontraditional digital camera work, and the lack of a musical soundtrack, make this film feel more like a documentary and less like a cinematic feature.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is phenomenal as Lyle Jensen, an easily angered and confused teenager, who can't seem to contain his rage. Don Cheadle is equally effective as the Head Counselor struggling to make a difference in the lives of the troubled teens, and at the same time dealing with his own demons. Michael Bacall plays the bipolar Chad, Lyle's closest thing to a friend in the facility, who despite putting on a friendly front is deeply conflicted inside. Zooey Deschanel plays the beautiful and kind Tracy, who suffers from crushingly low self-esteem. Her accomplice in the hospital is wannabe tough-girl Sara, played by newcomer Sara Rivas, who despite being outspoken and never one to appear weak, acts as a nurturer and protector for Tracy. The villain of the cast goes hands down to Mike, played by Elden Henson.Read more ›
The central character is Lyle (Joseph Gordon-Levitt / Third Rock from the Sun), in the ward after beating a kid with a baseball bat, and was sent to the hospital against his will. He won't talk about what happened, and his anger management issues are not helped any by fellow dweller Mike (Elden Ratliff / The Mighty Ducks), an argumentative Eminem wannabe who challenges everyone and loves to be at war with everyone.
The plot is Lyle's struggle to accept the idea that he actually does need help. Whether he wants it, or not. He was taught violence by his father, as it seems more or less all the teenagers here learned hazardous behaviours from their parents or guardians.
If you're a fan of "Girl Interrupted", you'll love this!
Was totally in awe of the performances of all of the characters in this movie, and how each had their own personal past, filled with fears and anxities which they reveal in small portions throughout the movie. This movie is a real eye-opener, but is totally believable and another yet another notch in Mr Levitt's belt.
