Charlize Theron has a very good take on Narcissistic Personality Disorder-(NPD). Her films "Young Adult" and "Snow White and the Huntsman" are Spot On character studies of persons afflicted with this awful impairment.
This film is very educational and informative to students of psychology in it's depiction of a person afflicted with this personality disorder and what their life might be like. It is heart wrenching and shockingly tragic and sad. The emptiness and desperate search for emotion and stimulation is painful to watch.
This film shows how Narcissistic Personality Disorder is almost akin to a sort of "Living Death" and the futile desperation to become alive as other people with families, careers, support groups, loved ones and all the other accouterments acquired from a fulfilling life.
Such disordered individuals inspire anger, resentment and hatred to the uninformed. Once one understands the disorder and its tragic dynamics on the sufferers; one cannot have anything but immense pity and sorrow for such an unfortunate individual because their life will never be a happy one. Relationships with persons such as these are doomed to failure!
I recommend this film to everybody who wants to learn about NPD. This is NOT a comedy!
Want to see a great performance in a so-so movie? Then watch "Young Adult."
