About the Movie
Take your best day and your darkest moment - and multiply by a million. Of Two Minds is an award-winning feature documentary that explores the extraordinary lives, struggles and successes of a few of the over five million Americans living with bipolar disorder. Personal stories of harrowing events, medical mazes, discrimination and the effects of social stigma blend together to create a compelling look at a generation coming out of the "bipolar closet." Of Two Minds puts an authentic human face on bipolar disorder, providing an intimate, sometimes painful, sometimes painfully funny look at those who live in its shadows - our parents and children, our friends and lovers...and ourselves.
This documentary captures much of the bipolar experience. No two people are affected the same by bipolar disorder, but this film gives a glimpse into some of the common experiences sufferers share. The film is touching and hopeful while at the same time terrifying and saddening. As someone who has lived in this hell, I can attest this movie does an excellent job of sharing the chaos with those who may not have experienced it personally. The film also gives credit to faithful caregivers who are often overlooked in conversations about living with manic depression. Overall, a wonderful film that I watched multiple times and shared with loved ones.
