It’s Kind of a Funny Story (2010) - Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck
5 bullets on this film:
I think this movie deals with the topic of mental illness very well, without being too heavy, but in a sensitive way. It’s deep and it makes you think a lot, but there are some funny scenes as well. If you ever feel sad, watch this, it’ll make you feel better.
Zach Galifianakis and Emma Roberts are great, they really got into their roles. I loved how all the characters were well-developed and how each one of them represented different mental illnesses.
The musical interludes basically made the entire movie.
The setting is basically the same during the whole movie: a psychiatric hospital. However, the colors and the nice cinematography make everything seem cute and not-boring.
When I was around 14 I used to get really sad sometimes, so I watched this film and it really helped me. I also read the novel written by Ned Vizzini, which was based on his own life. I recently found out that he commited suicide in 2013 and I am devastated. When you feel sad, please don’t do anything stupid.
Okay everyone, I’ve been in a slump for which movies to watch and I need your help. I’ve tagged some of my favorite actors, who I always enjoy watching. Please give me some ideas for what to watch next. If I choose your movie ill give you a shout-out on my review!
Adore this #TBT from Lauren Collins today on Instagram (@laurencollins):
For all that OG @Degrassi love last week, here’s a #tbt from season 1. The whole cast used to go for bday dinners at the local Pizza Hut or Jack Astor’s after filming. I can’t remember whose we were celebrating here, but it was a Tuesday-half price wings night at Duff’s! Our parents sat at another table. The show hadn’t aired yet. We all had raging hormones. It was an exciting time. At some point around here, we all went to Goldsbie’s Bar Mitzvah. Mazel Tov, Jake. And thanks everyone. For still caring and following and supporting 15 years later. Lots more where this came from. All the love xx ❤️
arielle: I’ve collected these photos over the years, pinned them up. You’d think I’d get tired of them. But every morning I sip my coffee and stare at them. It’s my life. It’s nice to stand back and just be glad, and love all these humans. I just like to look at them.
