Realistic
24 January 2014 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I work in the field, and have seen almost every dysfunctional, antisocial, nasty behavior shown here in the last month.

I saw this film in L.A. and have never forgotten it. Illness is much, much greater than the sum of it's parts. The movie, loosely, is about an adolescent who suffers from a mental disorder.

This film has so much promise, and has had so many recommendations. My hopes were really high. Illness is well worth the time.

Last, I felt that the movie told me a lot about a very sensitive topic and it needs to be seen by more people.

Hopefully, its writer-director will come-up with a feature length version of the film in the near future.
