Movie suggestion for Mental Health NRSG video analysis

  1. I have to watch a movie and then write a video analysis for mental health nursing and would like some suggestions for a movie. I need to list typical symptoms of the disorder, symptoms the actor exhibited, treatments used in the movie and compare them to what the standard treatment is for that disorder. I have a long list of movies to choose from, but only know the most popular ones (The Soloist, A beautiful mind, 28 days, etc.). I want to choose a movie that isn't well known, but I don't want the information I have to write about to be obscure either. Any ideas?


    Thanks!

    My top 4 suggestions are Sybil, Three Faces of Eve, Conspiracy Theory, Benny and Joon.

    Sybil and Three Faces of Eve would be the easiest

    "Manic" with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I have worked in psych and this is one of the more realistic portrayals of mental health facilities. The only caveat is that its filmed in an documentary or "raw" style. It deals with a group of juveniles who have various psychiatric disorders.
