Windy Cool Evening…

Thursday, 3.26.20

At 6:30pm, I went outside to get the mail from the mailbox, and I noticed it was cold and windy. I decided not to go for a walk. I need to go on my walks earlier, when it is warmer. 

I watched the movie, Girl Interrupted, again. It is a 1993 movie, starring Angelina Jolie, Winona Ryder, Clea DuVall, Brittany Murphy, Elisabeth Moss, Whoopie Goldberg, Angela Bettis, and others. It is about Susanna Kaysen’s life in the mental institution. Susanna Kaysen was played by Winona Ryder who also narrated the film. Like Winona Ryder, Susanna Kaysen is also Jewish. Susanna Kaysen was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.  In April 1967m Susanna Kaysen went to McLean Hospital in Massachusetts after attempting suicide via pills. She stays in the hospital for 18 months. She befriends other teen patients, which includes Polly Clark, Lisa Rowe, Georgina Tuskin, Lisa Cody, Daisy Randone, Torrey, Alice Calais, Wade, and Cynthia Crowley.

I haven’t read the book, which I am sure is much different from the movie, but the movie is OK.  Susanna Kaysen, from Cambridge, MA, she is divorced and she has one sister. She is 71. She is an American novelist.

According to movie reviews on the internet, the memoir book is much different than the movie.
