I like the mentioned movies- Girl, Interrupted, Prozac Nation (but I prefer the book), Thirteen and I want to recommend some more movies I knew and like.
28 days is about Si, addiction and therapy (rehab) and it is one of my favourite movies.
There is a French movie called "Je vais bien, ne t´en fais pas" which is about depression and anorexia but unfortunately I don´t know if there is an English version of it but I guess so because there is a German version of it.
Btw, this movie is another favourite movie of mine.
Mad love is about manic depression and I like it, too.
Secretary is about SI and BDSM and I like this movie, too but I guess that not everybody will like it because of the other topic ;) .
I can't control my destiny.
I trust my soul. My only goal is just to be. (Rent)
I'm selfish, inpatient and a little insecure.
I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. (Marilyn Monroe)
"Secretary" involves SI - it's not the focus point, but it does play a key part in the beauty of the story (it's a romance, really). As others have said, it IS a bit adult, so mature audiences suggested. It's one of my favorite movies, so I'd definitely say go for it if you're up for a movie that's a little different.
"Girl, Interrupted" is also fantastic - I just watched it two days ago, and it's also a favorite now.
I might have to check out some of the other movies suggested here. :)
manic is a good film. i can't remember if it features self harm, but it's about teenagers in a mental institution. i think it does, but as a major part of the film.
thirteen i own... i love it.
Requiem for a dream i ended up selling for drugs, and that was probably kind of a good decision considering i would've relapsed by now if i watched it again
so if u watch it and you ever did drugs like... ever, and you slammed them... DONT WATCH IT
thats actually how i relapsed like ten times cuz that movie and spun.
which is sad, cuz it should make me think, 'ew i would never do that' but i just said oh drugs, lets go get some.
stupid mistakes :/
in manic there's some self harm ya,
My little girlscout, your mouth is getting sore
Will you love me any less if I hurt you any more
