Reviews
Mine: A powerful look at the affect mental illness has on individuals and families. At times very funny, but in a dark way. Wonderful performances all around.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Young Augusten Burroughs absorbs experiences that could make for a shocking memoir: the son of an alcoholic father and an unstable mother, he's handed off to his mother's therapist, Dr. Finch, and spends his adolescent years as a member of Finch's bizarre extended family.
