Brain On Fire | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Susannah Cahalan (Chloë Grace Moretz) is a writer for The New York Post who works with her boss Richard (Tyler Perry) and best friend Margo (Jenny Slate). She meets a sound producer named Stephen (Thomas Mann) and they become a couple. Susannah begins to experience strange things, such as going into a trance state, seeing people who are not actually present talk about her, and hypersensitivity to annoying noises and tactile sensations, and her behavior becomes erratic. Finally, Susannah suffers a seizure and seeks treatment.
After consulting with a clinic, her father Tom (Richard Armitage) confronts Stephen about not calling her parents regarding the incident. Tom suggests that she stay with her parents, which Susannah refuses to do, but in the end she leaves to stay with her mother, Rhona (Carrie-Anne Moss), and stepfather, Allen (Alex Zahara). At her mother's house, Susannah has another seizure. She is taken to a clinic where she undergoes an MRI. The doctor advises Rhona that Susannah has been partying too much, working too hard and not getting enough sleep. While at one of her doctor's appointments, Susannah becomes convinced that she has bipolar disorder, since she is creative and "creative people are bipolar". Another doctor prescribes an anti-psychotic medication which, after reading of their side effects and believing them as causing her symptoms, she refuses. Rhona gets her to take the pills anyway, and asks her father to watch her because she is too difficult to handle. During dinner with her father, she becomes violent, yelling at him to stay away. Her parents demand that she be hospitalized despite MRI, EEG and physical tests all showing normal results.
