I finally saw this movie tonight with my hubby. It was an emotional experience for me right from the beginning of the story. My youngest son (he is now 25) has struggled with mood swings indicative of Bi-Polar Disorder as well as Asperger's Syndrome (a form of Autism). Unfortunately, the drama that accompanies many mental disorders rings true to me in this movie. It can be frightening and exhausting! My son now lives on his own; he has chosen to emotionally and physically distance himself from family members. Although this is sad & difficult to accept, it has restored some order & peace to my current life.
