Prozac Nation DVD Description
Based on the bestselling memoir by Elizabeth Wurtzel, PROZAC NATION tells the true story of Wurtzel's own difficulties with severe depression during her first year at college. Liz (Christina Ricci) is a gifted writer whose talent earns her a scholarship to Harvard University. Escaping from the controlling arms of her mother (Jessica Lange), Liz's delicate mental state is tested by the stress of being away from home at a challenging institution. Finding refuge in drugs and sex, she views herself with increasing criticism, eventually unable to work on her writing at all. A character study with a loose narrative that explores the seriousness of depression, PROZAC NATION was directed by Erik Skjoldbjaerg (INSOMNIA).
