2.5*/5.0*

Somewhat plain drama that deals with mental illness. The acting is a little too heavy-handed, the direction is a bit too simple and dry. It doesn't help that Nichols ends with a couple of clich├ęs that would be more at home in a true genre film, which takes away from the dramatic impact. It's not a bad film, just not all that exciting.
