MOVIE REVIEW It's Kind Of A Funny Story. Drama based on a book about a teenage boy who checks into a hospital psych ward to escape stress. I liked it. Was not only sweet and funny, but did a good job at portraying depression and mental illness. It reminded me of the two times I spent in psych wards after suicide attempts. I was the sanest person there. Immediately wanted to go home. But during my stay I came to respect the patients and staff.
