‘Words on Bathrooms Walls’ is a 2020 drama/ love story starring Charlie Plummer (Looking for Alaska), Taylor Russell (Lost in Space), Beth Grant (No Country for Old Men), Molly Parker (Lost in Space), Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight), and Lobo Sebastian (The Longest Yard). ‘Words on Bathroom Walls’ follows the story of Adam (Plummer) who is a high school student diagnosed with schizophrenia. None of the drugs or treatments are helping with the voices or seeing things that aren’t there. He starts a new trial drug that seems to be helping, and meets a girl he falls for at his new school, but how long can normality keep up?
This is pretty much your typical teen movie, high school kids fall in love and have something great to overcome. A typical them against the world situation, it just happens this time the situation is mental illness. ‘Words on Bathroom Walls’ does a good job at touching on the sensitive subject of mental illness. Which mental illness has it’s back turned on too much in our society, and it’s good to see movies touching on this subject. The acting is good and the movie is heart felt, however I was expecting a little more. I felt that it was dragged out and lagged in some parts. It’s not a bad movie, just a little disappointing. I give it a 6.5/10
