The affect on the family and boyfriend also show how real life families struggle with a loved one suffers from it.

I really got into it, mainly because I felt like I could relate to some of the things in the movie.

Drew Barrymore's performance as an overprotected, free spirit tortured by mental illness is very real. As her character unfolded, I completely recognized myself prior to my bipolar diagnosis. I watched the beautiful, young Casey (Barrymore) teeter between mania and depression. I watched her hurt the people who loved her most. I watched her ruin her life. It was difficult for me to watch this movie, but I highly recommend it to anyone affected by bipolar disorder, whether yourself or someone you love.

This film is about a high schooler named Matt (Chris O'Donnell) who has a crush on free spirited Casey (Drew Barrymore), so he finally gets the guts to ask her out, and they go to a punk rock concert together. They start to really like each other, and become boyfriend and girlfriend. One night, Matt sees Casey fighting with her parents, and she tells Matt that her father thinks Matt is a bad influence and that her father doesn't want Matt to see her anymore. Sooner or later, Matt hears that Casey has been put in the hospital, due to the fact that she tried to commit suicide by taking sleeping pills. Matt helps her escape, and the two lovebirds take a road trip against parental wishes. Along their way to Mexico, they encounter a sellsman who tries to hit on Casey, and Casey begins to experience depression episodes again. Matt learns that Casey is Bi-Polar, and he tries to comfort her the only way he knows how. He decides his only option is to get her help, so he decides to call her parents. She attempts to commit suicide again, telling Matt that she doesn't want to be sick anymore and that she doesn't want to be locked up. Matt talks her out of it, and they return home, so that Casey can recieve medical treatment. This film may or may not sound interesting, but it's a great film nevertheless. Drew Barrymore and Chris O'Donnell give excellent performances. Recommended.

Ah...mad love. This movie was on HBO ON DEMAND and I decided to watch it one lazy summer day. I really got into it, mainly because I felt like I could relate to some of the things in the movie. Drew Bareymore plays a great role, as a depressed teen trying to break the habit and find love. She does..but her parents don't approve of the young man who lives across the lake...you know the deal. They run away and "try" to make it on their own. She can't deal with being away because she really is mentally ill and the tears started to flow because she ends up in a hospital writing letters to him at the end. God! I cried and cried and cried! Tragic love story...definately add it to your collection today.

...and probably chris o'donnel's best movie too. IT starts off as a very enjoyable movie at first, then it peels away it's cover to show a very sirious side. And in the process Drew Barrymore's acting is fantastic. If only she stayed that way instead of making worthless unmentionables like Charlies Angels. ANd Chris Odonnel is along for the ride. His quiet tempermental acting shouldn't work with Drew's fierce character, but somehow it does. The only complaint is that Odonnel is usually the same in all of his movies, and this one doesn't change. His just like he was in Scent of a Woman, but he's still enjoyable. A movie fan's favorite.

Drew and Chris make this film come alive! Although it is a teen movie, some adults might like it! I thought it was very touching, but really sad. It is weird at times, but good all around. If you like Drew this is a movie for you!!
