Chloe Grace Moretz does a good job for a change in this lengthy drama about a girl losing her mind to encephalitis. It’s a true story, to boot.
Here’s the scoop: if you’ve ever wanted to watch a twenty-one year old New York Post writer go insane because of a wicked mental condition, this is the movie to fill the void. Featuring plate-smashing, screaming, comatose drooling and plenty of seizures, it’s just cringe after frown after teeth-gnash after wince.
To this movie’s credit, no matter how… tame (?) the main story might be considering how long it runs and how little it escalates, all the main actors are great. Absolutely great. Trinity from The Matrix and Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit are in this, for crying out loud.
