$19.98
On the night of Oct. 2, 2005, Hart and Dana Perry’s 15-year-old son Evan jumped to his death from his New York City bedroom window. This moving film is the story, told by his filmmaker parents and others who knew him, of Evan’s life and death, and his life-long struggle with bipolar disorder. It delves into the complexity of Evan’s disease, sharing his family’s journey through the maze of mental illness. In showing how one family deals with generations of loss and grief, the film defies the stigma related to mental illness and suicide and tells a human story that touches everyone.

      Comments about this product:

      Boy Interrupted is one of the most informative documenters on Bipolar two depression and this documentary could save lives.
      What a beautiful family and how brave they are to tell there story.

      If anyone knows someone who has bipolar two depression they should buy this documentary and give it to the family.

        My son is also Bipolar/ADHD/ODD and I have had a relationship fail due inpart to my son's difficulties. Watching Evan's home video's could have easily been my son. The attempting to hang himself on the bunk beds, talking about having guns and knives, and NO FEAR of death. I cried off and on, watching these poor parents, and relieved at the same time to see that there are others like me and my son. NAMI has been a great help. TO the Perry's...Bless you for allowing us into your most horrifying of experiences,You will help many with this selfless act.
