Winding Road

Movie Opens Friday, Plus Enter Giveaway Below 

Words on Bathroom Walls, directed by Thor Freudenthal, is based on the young adult novel by the same name by Julia Walton. Charlie Plummer brilliantly plays the lead role of Adam, who abruptly is diagnosed as a schizophrenic half way through his senior year of high school. The plot progresses as he begins to hallucinate, trying to fit in by hiding his illness from the kids at school. After an explosive and embarrassing mental breakdown incident he is expelled from public school and sent to a private Catholic academy which has reluctantly accepted him.

Changing schools and trying to find medication that works with minimal side effects unfortunately doesn't seem to be helping much. So, Adam continues a lonely downward spiral. Luckily, before he reaches a point of no return, a cast of characters swoops in to help him stand up again and point him in the right direction. 

Among the actors of note creating Adam's caring support system include Molly Parker as Beth, his devoted single mother; Taylor Russell as Maya, a fellow classmate and tutor turned girlfriend; and Andy Garcia as a kindly older non-judgmental Catholic priest and father figure. Together they help Adam find acceptance of the disease he is afflicted with which has no cure.
