For this weeks Watch this! Movie of the Week, I’m recommending a touching story about the struggle with mental illness and the fight for mental health, Touched With Fire starring Katie Holmes was directed/produced by Pual Dailio.
Paul Dalio is the son of world renowned investor and billionaire Ray Dalio. He also directs this movie from the perspective of someone who struggles with Bipolar 1 disorder. This makes for a raw and intimate production process that masterfully captures the manic, depressive nature of the illness.
In this movie, two bipolar patients meet in a psychiatric hospital and begin a romance that brings out all of the beauty and horror of their condition.
I highly recommend this movie for anyone who struggles with mental illness themself, or has a friend/family member that needs love and support in coping with their mental health issues.
