Suicide, Depression and Mental Illness Run in Her Family. The Granddaughter of Illustrious Author Ernest Hemingway Explores the Tragedies and Hidden Secrets of Her Family History as She Searches for a Way to Overcome a Similar Fate in Her New Documentary Film…
Running From Crazy
From executive producer Oprah Winfrey and Academy Award Winning Director Barbara Kopple, Running From Crazy explores the Hemingway family's disturbing history of mental illness and suicide; there have been several suicides in the Hemingway family, including Mariel's grandfather and sister. As a youngster, Mariel followed her supermodel sister, Margaux, into the acting world. Critics immediately praised Mariel’s natural talent, which created a deep rift between the sisters. Kopple's bold portrait of the Hemingways intertwines haunting archival footage from Margaux's personal family documentary with scenes from Mariel’s life today as she advocates for suicide prevention and strives to live a rigorously healthy lifestyle to combat what appears to be her birthright.
