"While One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest offered a subversive and satirical look at a psychiatric institute, Rose Garden delivered a dramatic, emotionally compelling portrait of a young woman's experience of psychiatric treatment. This OscarÂ®-nominated screenplay was adapted from the best-selling novel by Hannah Green. It features a critically acclaimed performance by a young Kathleen Quinlan in an extremely challenging role. Shot with stark realism, the film pulls no punches in its depiction of a psychiatric ward, while maintaining individual and sensitive portrayals of the hospital's residents.
