Girl Interrupted

In observance of International Women’s Day, CRY America, Orange County presents a special free screening of Girl Interrupted.

In the changing world of the late 1960s, a young woman has a nervous breakdown and finds herself in a mental institution for troubled women. Here, she must choose between the world of people who belong on the inside versus the often difficult world of reality on the outside.


“Meaty roles for an eager young female ensemble. On that level, and on several others, the movie triumphs.” – Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com

“Shrewd, tough, and lively.” – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
