Girl, Interrupted

Trivia: The scene at the ice cream parlor was filmed at Eckel's Ice Cream Fountain in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. There is a "Girl, Interrupted Sundae" on the menu. As of May 2024, they are temporarily closed.

Trivia: Marilee Rush's "Angel of the Morning", featured in the film's soundtrack, was written by Angelina Jolie's uncle, Chip Taylor.

Factual error: The movie is set in 1967-1968 (69?). The Doors song, "Roadhouse Blues" was not released until 1970, on the album "Morrison Hotel". The song, however, plays at the party the two girls (Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie) go to, when they "escape" from the hospital.

More quotes from Girl, Interrupted

Question: Why did Polly get a panic attack in the middle of the night?

Answer: Polly freaked out because she had seen Suazanna kissing her boyfriend earlier that day. Polly realised that is something she will never have.

Answer: If you listen to her yelling when they try to subdue her, she yells out "I'm ugly". This is most likely stemming from earlier when Angelina's character makes a comment about Polly never finding love because of the way she looks.
