Visit the Wonder: Art and Science on the Brain

In one of the greatest performances in cinema history, Gena Rowlands stars as Mabel, a suburban housewife suffering a mental breakdown. As her behaviour becomes increasingly erratic, her husband (Peter Falk) struggles to cope, and is forced to commit her to an institution. A brave film on so many fronts, it asks us to contemplate definitions of mental health – is Mabel mad or just ‘eccentric’, as her husband insists? – and why is it the family cannot live with her different, but not dangerous, behaviour?
