Set in the changing world of the late 1960s, ``Girl, Interrupted'' is the searing true story of Susanna Kaysen (two-time Oscar® nominee Winona Ryder), a young woman who finds herself at a renowned mental institution in a ward for troubled young women.

Based on the best-selling book of the same name and directed by celebrated ``Cop Land'' director James Mangold, ``Girl, Interrupted'' features tour de force performances by today's most critically acclaimed young actors, including Ryder and Angelina Jolie (Golden Globe winner for ``Gia'' and ``George Wallace'').

The film also stars Jared Leto, Brittany Murphy and Clea DuVall, as well as Oscar® winners Whoopi Goldberg and Vanessa Redgrave.

Kaysen's prescribed ``short rest'' from a psychiatrist she had met only once becomes a strange, unknown journey into Alice's Wonderland, where she spends nearly a year on the ward both flirting and struggling with the thin line between normal and crazy.

Kaysen soon realizes how hard it is to get out once she's been committed, and she ultimately has to choose between the world of people who belong on the inside -- like the seductive and dangerous Lisa (Jolie) -- or the often difficult world of reality on the outside.

``Girl, Interrupted'' questions the boundaries of freedom and confinement, friendship and betrayal, and madness and sanity at a time when it seemed the whole world might be going crazy.

``Girl, Interrupted'' opens Dec. 21 (limited) and Jan. 14 (wide)
