A few weeks ago, I saw Helen, a 2009 film with Ashley Judd. (I couldn't find a rating online, but we just fast forwarded the parts that looked questionable.) The main character is a woman haunted by Depression.

The movie left me feeling sad and very thoughtful. Why do all these stories of people with Depression have to be of people who at least have a partner or spouse or child? The one girl in the movie who doesn't have anyone seems to be the strongest, but in the end she is the one who doesn't survive.

Anyway, good for a view if you like serious movies.
