I am a therapist, author and live with bipolar disorder. I also faced five psychiatric hospitalizations before becoming healthy through medications and therapy. This movie touched a nerve even though I have been doing well for some time. I thought it was very interesting and had some truly touching moments. I also thought the acting was great and authentic. I think some people might be turned off by the tension in seeing someone with severe bipolar disorder. I do think the best part of the movie is the awareness it creates about bipolar disorder. Sadly, one in five people with this illness commit suicide. This is a tragic statistic which I am working to lower. I know movies like this encourage people to face their issues. It also helps those with it to not feel alone and scared. I wrote my book Beating Bipolar published by Hay House to teach about bipolar, share my story and help anyone impacted by the illness. You may see Beating Bipolar on Amazon or at any store. I would suggest seeing Silver Linings Playbook and will be rooting for it during Oscar season. Thank you for reading this, Blake LeVine
