Film: “I Never Promised You a Rose Garden”
Adapted from Joanne Greenberg’s 1964 semi-autobiographical novel of the same name, this 1977 film is a somewhat flawed, “hollywood” depiction of a true story. The true value of the film is as a chronicle of healing achieved before the discovery of first generation antipsychotic medications such a chlorpromazine (Thorazine).
