Outstanding film about Eleanor Riese (Helena Bonham Carter) , a patient in a psychiatric hospital who has been overmedicated against her will. Eleanor hires Colette Hughes (Hillary Swank) , a patients' rights attorney, to take her case. This leads to a landmark decision for advised consent for psychiatric patients held against their will. Helena Bonham Carter should have been nominated for an Academy Award for this performance and Hillary Swank also did an outstanding portrayal of Colette Hughes. Must see for anyone interested in human rights and patients' rights and psychiatry.
