Richard Gere comes to terms with his manic depression with the help of psychiatrist Lena Olin
24 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Mr. Jones" is an original and creative story, brought to life by a first-rate performance by Richard Gere as a manic depressive.

At the outset, in his "up" or manic phase, Gere wants to fly and almost jumps off a building. In his "down" or depressive phase, he feels great sadness.

His shrink seems permanently sad and depressed, both in character and as played by the forlorn Lena Olin. Her performance is much more one note. She is very sympathetic toward Gere's Jones, but she didn't draw me in to her character. Most of the time she seemed puzzled, or distant, or sad herself.

My rating is mainly due to the original story idea and to Gere. The story does tend to play out and dissipate in the middle third, however.
