Prozac Nation (2005)

3 Stars (out of 4)

United States of Depression

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

After four years and various false starts, ProzacNation finally hits San Francisco movie screens. Skittish distributorMiramax seriously dropped the ball on this tough, potent little film;it's much better than you've heard. Christina Ricci (who alsoco-produced) is outstanding as the talented Harvard journalism studentwho gradually and then suddenly succumbs to severe, cripplingdepression, alienating her roommate (Michelle Williams), boyfriend(Jason Biggs) and mother (Jessica Lange). The film avoidsdisease-of-the-week sentimentality with Ricci's calm, reasoningvoice-over juxtaposing her erratic behavior; she realizes what she'sdoing but just can't stop. Erik Skjoldbjaerg (the original Insomnia)directs, based on the bestseller by Elizabeth Wurtzel.

DVD Details: Miramax has finally released this poor, neglected film on DVD in America. The only extra is the Sundance Channel "Anatomy of a Scene" Special. The previously available import DVD comes with no extras and is presented in the pan-and-scan format.
