Benny and Joon Movie Review & Film Summary (1993)

benny and joon mental illness

I haven't seen the movie, but the reason she is labeled at Schizophrenic by most is because she hears voice and interacts with them. We may excel in one type of social interaction, yet be a tranwreck under slightly different circumstances. Much of the credit for that goes to Depp, who takes a character that might have seemed unplayable on paper, and makes him into the kind of enchanter who might be able to heal Joon. Female autists are more likely to be skilled at social subtitles than male autists, perhaps because it's expected of us and we have the rules explained to us as kids as a part of normal female socialization. It's clear in this movie that Benny simultaneously loves his sister, enjoys her company, and is becoming resentful of the distress she causes him.

Many autists struggle to feel like their idiosyncratic special interests are useful, but he figures out how to make a living at it. Joon definately has signs of Post Traumatic Stress disorder which is pretty obvious if you notice the flashbacks of her and Benny viewing the dead parents after the accident --her anxiousness, her intolerance of loud noises. But Benny and Joon succeeds in remaining blithe and sunny, directed by Jeremiah Chechik with a commercial liveliness and a suitable sense of the absurd. After this incident, she is taken to the mental hospital, where she wishes to stay as an in-patient. An angry Benny throws Sam out, yells at Joon, and shows her a pamphlet about a group home that would be a better home for her.

Movies in the Classroom: Benny and Joon

Joon nearly burns the house down a couple of times. I hate that the world is like that. They pack suitcases and get on a bus, but Joon soon begins to hear voices in her head and argues with them, in great distress. Our options being some form of Schizophrenia or the possibility of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Joon definately has signs of Post Traumatic Stress disorder which is pretty obvious if you notice the flashbacks of her and Benny viewing the dead parents after the accident --her anxiousness, her intolerance of loud noises. I always thought Joon was schizophrenic, and later I realized her symptoms were very similar to my friend with that disease.

Main Character From The Film Benny And Joon

All in all, I really don't think Sam had any issues, just eccentricities. Joon appears to be responding to internal stimuli while riding the bus towards the end of the film. When she takes her medication and stays calm and things go smoothly, their lives are blessedly uneventful. To make a movie combatting sexism, you must portray sexism. I finally ended up leaning it on my own, in my own way, at the age of ten.

Joon exhibits disorganized behavior when she is seen directing traffic in a busy intersection with a ping pong racket while wearing a snorkeling mask. Tanya believed Kim was all to blame. A sympathetic character is someone the reader likes and wants to be successful. Her outbursts and unusual speech patterns reflected an inner persona I was holding at bay, like I had this little bit of crazy locked up inside that escaped sometimes when no one was looking.

Film

At the end of the film, Joon and Sam are shown to be happy in an apartment, ironing toast. The film never explores what illness she has or how the medication affects her, in any depth. I love these posts and reviewing movies with psyc problems is probably the most amazing thing for Halloween. He takes another bouquet to Joon's apartment but leaves the flowers in the doorway when he sees Sam and Joon making grilled cheese sandwiches with a clothes iron. We don't have to label them or understand them. You are able to see, once Benny backs off, how Joon can live without her outbreaks.

Benny & Joon (1993)

Based on the 1993 movie, the story follows brother and sister Benny Andrew Samonsky and Joon Hannah Elless , who lost their parents in a tragic accident. I think that being able to finally talk to Joon without an interference from Benny is what allows a final decision from the doctor. I supose he could have autism. I live with a bipolar woman, a couple of , and another aspie. She stays at home and paints, during her good periods, and rages at him, during her bad times.

We aspies make more interesting characters. And if we successfully remove these types of problematic content from our fiction, our movement will fizzle out and die. He does it out of love, but it begins to constrict Joon more and more as she gets older. Benny and Joon reconcile and Sam and Joon are reunited. Another reason is that I love how subtle the message truly is. If you make a movie to combat ablism, you must depict ablism. In contrast, the felt personally attacked.

Is Sam mentally ill too?

The show will run at from April 4-May 5, 2019. She complained that her most recent psychiatrist refused to have her condition re-evaluated since her last evaluation occurred when my ex was living at home in a very toxic, unstable environment, and has calmed down significantly since then , seemed to have a full idea of who she was merely from glancing at her chart, and tried to switch her meds when the ones she was on were working fine. And Aidan Quinn, in a somewhat thankless role as the movie's reality base and opponent of love, never plays a scene simply for its obvious point, but lets us see that his love for his sister underlies all of his decisions. In our reading during week 2 about people with schizophrenia in Zanzibar, the author discussed how the people kept their emotions at a very mellow state when around their family member that was ill. Joon joins a poker game at Mike's and loses a bet that commits Sam to live with the Pearls.

PSYCH MOVIE REVIEW: Benny & Joon

benny and joon mental illness

Throughout this post, I will directly answer the points made by one of these reviews. It can be the main character of the story, the supporting characters and even the villains. I only have problems with it in certain circumstances. A character we related to was made invisible by our supposed allies. I came here to see if this was being discussed, having just seen the film. For instance she has a habit of setting things on fire. Joon rejects them for a long list of imperfections.
