Anybody watch? I’d recommend it. A well made, thought-provoking film.
Story of a woman and her battle with and eventual demise from mental illness. A hard watch at times, but very well made, interesting subject and lots of gorgeous B-Roll you would expect from a film like this. Catch it if you think you might be interested.
Details spoilered [spoiler]A woman’s corpse is found in a sealed, empty home. Nothing much but a few journals/notebooks. Investigators piece together her identity and details of her final few months through her own writings, and family and friends fill in the rest. Family home movies of her and her sister portray a normal family and stable life, up to and beyond a marriage and child.
Then things go off the rails and the film becomes a study of her losing battle with mental illness and eventual death. Pretty powerful film.[/spoiler]
[spoiler]Hard for me, personally, because this could be my sister. She was always a little kooky, but about 5 years ago she had some major event that caused a huge rift between her and pretty much everybody in her life. Haven’t seen or spoken to her in years. My mom is pretty tore up about it. But the big take-away for me is, You can’t help someone who won’t let you help them.
