Authentic content and acting
29 June 2018 | by hari95See all my reviews

First of all we didn't get to see as many movies with bipolar disorder lead characters and sticking with it throughout the movie. This is the only movie i have seen that speaks about bipolar disorder. I read the movie was based on the director's experience with the disorder hence i think the movie came out really authentic It is a movie about two poets (how often u get that) whose creativity is fueled by their bipolar disorder (they believe so). They also at one point in the movie believes they are not from this planet , just like your are thinking they became extreme maniacs as long as they stay and feed off each other ideas. But to make a child and a family you have to be in the system and play within its rules. I concur with one of the review you can take away something from the movie only if you have bipolar disorder or if you any idea about the disorder. Because i didn't speak anything from our perspective (non-bipolar) rather than theirs(bipolar). the acting and the different acts and music are the beautiful tools that anyone could easily connect with this movie
