Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (1)
Angelina Jolie avoided any communication with Winona Ryder when making this movie claiming that if she saw anything human about Winona Ryder, she wouldn't have been able to act out the sociopath character of Lisa Rowe as effectively.
Much of this movie was filmed at the Harrisburg (Pennsylvania) State Hospital, which was still in use for treatment of mentally ill patients until it closed in 2005.
Lisa Rowe recites a poem by Dorothy Parker called "Resume": "Razors pain you; Rivers are damp; Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp. Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give; Gas smells awful; You might as well live."
The book and film Girl, Interrupted take their title from the painting "Girl Interrupted at her Music" by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer.
The song "Angel of the Morning" on the film's soundtrack was composed by Angelina Jolie's uncle Chip Taylor.
Rose McGowan and Claire Danes auditioned for the role of Lisa Rowe.
This is one of many roles in which Winona Ryder's character writes in a diary.
(26 March 2000) Angelina Jolie's attendance at the Academy Awards was not her first. At just 10-years-old, she sat beside her father Jon Voight when he was up for the Best Actor Oscar for Runaway Train (1985). (Voight lost to William Hurt for Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985)) (24 March 1986).
The band in the graduation scene is from William Penn High School in York, Pennsylvania.
The quote that Dr. Sonia Wick uses during her first meeting with Susanna Kaysen is from Lucio Anneo Seneca, a Roman Stoic philosopher.
Phedon Papamichael Jr. was supposed to be director of photography on the film but had to pull out due to work on The Million Dollar Hotel (2000). He would later team up with James Mangold on Identity (2003) and has served as director of photography on all his films since then.
