About the Movie

Award winners Christina Ricci (CURSED, MONSTER) and Jessica Lange (BIG FISH, ROB ROY) star in this emotionally charged true story about a journey into excess! When talented young writer Elizabeth Wurtzel (Ricci) earns a scholarship to Harvard, she sees it as her chance to escape the pressures of her working-class background and concentrate on her true talent. But what starts out so promising leads to self-destructive behavior and paralyzing depression that reflects an entire generation's struggle to navigate the effects of divorce, drugs, sex, and high expectations. Based on the best-selling autobiographical novel, PROZAC NATION also stars Michelle Williams (THE STATION AGENT), Anne Heche (JOHN Q), Jason Biggs (JERSEY GIRL), and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers (BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM).

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The self-centered brat at the center of Prozac Nation spends most of her time making life miserable for everyone around her, but there's little reason the public should have to pay for the same privilege. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Ninety-eight minutes of this movie and you may find yourself reaching for Prozac or the antidepressant of your choice. A cheap shot, to be sure, but the movie earns it. – Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Truly depressing, a dark, mean and screechy film that still looks half-finished after years on the shelf. – Michael Booth, Denver Post, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: There's really no reservoir of sympathy deep enough to support a whiny, navel-gazing Harvard student who turns her depression into a show-stopping spectacle. – Scott Tobias, AV Club, Jun 24, 2010

Order this for the closed caption but it doesn't work

no cc

should've read the review. bought for cc. no cc. can't even watch what i paid for.

Ignore the negative reviews...

Despite the rather negative reviews, this movie is considerably well-done. The performance given by Christina Ricci was honest and vulnerable, and not to mention Jessica Lange's very successful acting. This film truly demonstrates the effects academic pressure and family pressures can have on mental health, and actually to a certain degree portrays depression quite successfully.
