Good movie. It's not often filmmakers handle the subject of someone with a real mental illness trying to find love and manage a relationship. I only wish I could have understood all the dialogue, much of which was mumbled or whispered, and there were no subtitles. Probably the subtitler person couldn't understand either.

Absolute tour-de-force performance by Tatiana Maslany as a woman with Rapid Cycling Bipolar Disorder. You can't look away as she captivates with her range and dynamic character portrayal.

It seems someone here has never heard of the word "nadir" before. I'm a little surprised to hear that. I've seen it used dozens of times in books that I've read in high school and college and even privately since. I have even used in writing of my own.
That's okay. You can change things. My sincere advice for anyone especially concerned about encountering shocking new words like "nadir" is for you to maybe pass on watching the movies for a just a little while. Chances are you are are less likely to be exposed to these new strange words in a mass consumption film so perhaps try to read a few more books. It may really help expand your vocabulary. Just saying. Good luck. Peace.

Tatiana never ceases to amaze me with her ability to bring a new facet of a personality she portrays. Nice to see she's going to be getting quality work after OB.

Words are hard. Learning new words makes me mad. Too many words makes me feel bad. This synopsis has more than 140 characters. Sad.

Donald Trump loves the poorly educated.

Yes, "nadir" is a familiar word, part of a rich vocabulary that seems to be a thing of the past for most Americans. Sad.

In the description for this film it says "in his nadir". I just wanted to note that I have never heard of this word "nadir" and had to look it up. It means: the lowest point in the fortunes of a person or organization. Cool word, but seriously.. has anyone ever heard or used this word before??
