BRAIN ON FIRE (2016)
Based on a true story about a young journalist who slowly starts having a meltdown and her change in moods can't be explained. Doctors are baffled by her erratic behaviour and firstly diagnose her as drinking too much and when that diagnose fails she then is considered bipolar until a specialist finds out the truth. This movie puts you in the mindset of this young capable professional and then seeing her decline mentally, leaves you feeling helpless and sad for this gifted journalist. A sad movie that carries you through her journey hoping that a miracle doctor can save her from her dramas. An entertaining flick that drops you and picks you up in the end, two thumbs up for the journey.
