Little has been written, however, about the ability of movies to portray mental illness sympathetically and accurately. Zimmerman fills that void with a close look at mental illness in more than seventy American movies, beginning with classics such as The Snake Pit and Now, Voyager and including such contemporary successes as A Beautiful Mind and As Good as It Gets.
