Storyline

Of Two Minds explores the extraordinary lives, struggles and successes of three unique and compelling people living with bipolar disorder in America today. Through a combination of intimate verité and revealing interviews, we experience what it feels like to be bipolar - from exquisite feelings of grandiosity and sensuality to the depths of despair and depression. A journey from the painful to the painfully funny, Of Two Minds puts a human face on the illness, opening an engaging, harrowing and perception-changing view on those all around us who live in bipolar's shadows...our sisters and brothers, parents and friends, and ourselves. Written by Doug Blush and Lisa Klein

Warm, funny, and heartbreaking
2 January 2013 | by amy-reynaldoSee all my reviews

This documentary introduces us to about five or six people living with bipolar disorder--and also to a couple others who lost their struggle with bipolar and committed suicide. It sounds terribly sad, right? But you will be utterly enchanted by the interesting, creative, funny people we meet. I found myself laughing more than I teared up.

The filmmakers did a terrific job of highlighting an oft-misunderstood diagnosis. It's an optimistic movie--we see people thriving with bipolar, both with and without medication--but it is also realistic. The risk of suicide among persons with bipolar disorder is all too real, and that's not sugar-coated here.
