What’s new and different about the storyline for Broken Waters?
In films dealing with mental illness, the audience is used to a story that revolves around the patient, and that features mental health professionals that are evil. Broken Waters is different because it is focused on Marguerite, a young woman psychiatrist. It shows us that mental health professionals are human, with troubles just like their patients. It examines their own conflicted opinions about the use of medication in treating psychological disorders. It’s new because it seeks to portray the doctor-patient bond that can be born from psychiatric therapy, as opposed to its lunacy.
