Suffering from mild psychosis, a pre-2001 Keir Dullea is taken to an institution for mentally ill adolescents. Here he becomes interested in Janet Margolin, who suffers from a dissociative identity disorder. Gradually they begin to bond but the path to connection proves fraught. An American independent film milestone that earned director Frank and screenwriter Eleanor Perry Academy Award nominations. “A turning point in the history of world cinema.” – Jean Renoir
