It's based on writer Susanna Kaysen's memoir of her stay in a mental institution in the late s. Shortly after her high school graduation and a subsequent suicide attempt probablyupper-middle-class Susanna Ryder is admitted to Claymoore Psychiatric Hospital, where she meets and in some cases befriends other young, female patients, most notably Lisa Joliethe charismatic ring leader. The group rebels against the oppression of institutionalized life, going bowling in the basement at night and breaking into the doctor's office to read their case files. Susanna is diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, Lisa is a sociopath, Georgina DuVall a compulsive liar, and the saccharine Polly Moss a disturbed burn victim.


It is not. In fact, the story is based on the best-selling memoirs of Susanna Kaysen.

Winona Ryder lends her weepy eyes and eccentric persona to the character of Susanna, a rich white girl with too much on her mind as the world changes around her. Then she tries to kill herself with aspirin and vodka.

That lands her in Claymoore Hospital, an upscale mental institution. She makes friends, settles in, breaks out, comes back and generally ties herself into emotional knots.

She had spent a great deal of time dreaming about suicide, but its brutality confronts her when one of her self-destructive friends follows through. Susanna is portrayed as a troubled, yet caring individual. She establishes deep friendships with a few of the other girls at Claymoore, and on several occasions goes out of her way to either cheer them up or help them in some way.

In the end she must decide whether to stay in the asylum, where she has cultivated a feeling of safety, or re-launch her life in the real world. She chooses wisely.
