Heartwrenching Portrayal
2 June 2020 | by laurelhagenSee all my reviews

This show is not for everyone. It's depressing, it's frustrating and it's absolutely a crystal clear portrayal of a young man, a twin, who starts his life in a typical way when schizophrenia emerges in his early twenties. What follows is the impact it has on his family and the devastating effect on the life of his identical twin brother. The trauma doesn't stop there, though. Many losses are covered over the years that may leave the viewer saddened and sickened. The real gem in all this is the acting. It's believable and superb. Mark Ruffalo deserves an Emmy for not only doing double-duty, but for the true talent that he is. Rosie O'Donnell deserves an Emmy for Supporting Actor. Her role is pivotal and brings some respite to the viewers. I personally love that NAMI (National Association for the a Mentally Ill) is mentioned in the end credits. Schizophrenia is real. It's impact on families, friends and the community is real. If this miniseries does anything at all for viewers it's make families aware of the signs and symptoms and to seek help early.
