To design a movie poster for the film “Girl, Interrupted”.
“Girl, Interrupted” is a 1999 drama film about a teenager’s 18 month stay at a mental institution, starring Winona Ryder, Angelina Jolie, Brittany Murphy, Whoopi Goldberg and Vanessa Redgrave, with Jolie winning an Academy Award for her performance. The film is an adaptation of author Susanna Kaysen’s memoir. James Mangold directed, and he, Anna Hamilton Phelan, and Lisa Loomer wrote the screenplay.
Throughout the film, there is the reoccurring theme of self-control; the constant loss and return of it. The protagonist, Susanna Kaysen, voluntarily checks herself into a psychiatric ward after an overdose of aspirin yet she denies the accusation that she was committing suicide. Expressed through the unnerving motions of a hand, dramatic photography forces the audience to feel uneasy and evolve along with the main character.
