Authentic portrayal of PTSD
15 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to see Happy New Year while in Austin for SXSW film festival. I usually do not post reviews but after seeing this film, felt compelled to do so. As a practicing mental health counselor, I was amazed and moved by the accurate depiction of PTSD as portrayed by the actors in the film. I have worked with and continue to counsel those affected by this paralyzing disorder and have not seen the subtleties of the hopelessness and despair, irritability and distress associated with PTSD so poignantly illustrated as it is in this film. From the cinematography to the soundtrack, the film's production was authentic in its attempt to bring the audience into the psyche of those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress. The acting was impeccable as well. Mike Cuomo and Wilmer Calderon in particular, were incredibly genuine in their portrayals.

Although this review focuses primarily on the PTSD aspect of the film, I also want to note that the film is also a sad but true statement on the condition of our veteran care here in the United States. These men and women sacrifice their lives and both their physical and mental health to protect our country and our freedoms. It is devastating to see the lack of care and concern many of our soldiers face upon their return from war. I certainly hope this film can help raise awareness of these many issues and bring communities, governments, and caregivers together to work on solutions.

Overall, an amazing film with a powerful message....not to be missed!!
