Tough film to watch
15 February 1999 | by SKG-2See all my reviews

If you read the plot description of this film - two patients in a mental hospital fall in love, decide to move in together, one of them gets pregnant, and the two decide to go off medication for the baby's sake, with tragic results - you might think this is an American-type disease-of-the-week movie, but you'd be wrong. This is a tough and wrenching film which doesn't shy away from the tough questions. The ending is a puzzlement, because I'm not sure what it means, but other than that, this is powerful stuff. John Lynch and Jacqueline McKenzie deserve to be commended, as does writer-director Michael Rymer.
