Description du produit
Set within the highly charged confines of individual psychotherapy sessions, In Treatment centers around Dr. Paul Weston (Gabriel Byrne) who recently divorced his wife Kate and has moved from Maryland to a brownstone in Brooklyn, New York. Rebuilding his practice while wrestling with some of the demons he left behind--including a lawsuit filed by the father of Alex, a patient who died last year--Paul takes on several new patients and commutes to Maryland every Friday to continue his own sessions with Dr. Gina Toll (Dianne Wiest).
In its superb second season, In Treatment remains the gold standard example of discomfort television; not discomfort as in the cringe-worthy comedy of awkward pauses (The Office, Curb Your Enthusiasm), but discomfort in the intimate and primal issues most series avoid or reassuringly attempt to wrap up within the hour. "The kind of therapy I practice, it's not a quick fix," Dr. Paul Weston (Golden Globe winner Gabriel Byrne) tells one of his four new patients. "It's a process, and eventually change happens, but it does take time." It's time well spent in the company of Byrne and an exemplary Emmy-worthy ensemble. Hope Davis, John Mahoney, and Dianne Wiest seem incapable of sounding a false note, but the revelations this season are two young newcomers, Alison Pill as an architecture student who refuses to tell her mother about her recent cancer diagnosis, and Aaron Shaw as Oliver, a child caught in the crossfire of his parents' anything but amicable divorce. The format is unchanged from Season One. Each daily half hour "session" mostly plays out in real time, with some illuminating glimpses of Paul outside his relocated Brooklyn office. Davis's Mia is a hard-driving lawyer and a former patient of Paul's, with abandonment and intimacy issues after he ended her therapy 20 years before. Mahoney's Walter is an embattled CEO suffering from a recent wave of panic attacks. Wiest reprises her Emmy-winning role as Gina, Paul's former mentor whom he visits on Fridays. They have much to talk about. His "mess of a life" includes a recent divorce, a $20 million malpractice suit brought by an embittered father (Glynn Turman reprising his Emmy-winning role) who blames Paul for the possibly suicidal death of his son (a patient from Season One), and the passing of his own estranged father. "I'm caught between heaven and hell," Paul tells Gina. In its raw emotion, In Treatment is hardly escapist entertainment. "Last week I had nothing," Mia wails at one point, "now I feel less than nothing." But, as Paul assures her, this is ultimately a good thing for these desperate characters (and viewers) seeking closure. "Thank you, Paul," Mia allows. "That was a good session." And a great season. --Donald Liebenson --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Après le divorce et le déménagement à N-Y, il est tristement seul. Merveilleux Gabriel Byrne et extraordinaire Diane Wiest!

the first time. Since I am well aware of the process of psychotherapy, being a clinical psychologist myself I found myself once again doubting
the wisdom of showing the ins and outs of psychoanalytic therapy to the general public. The language in the series is heavy and the lack
of understanding that the general public would have of the process, without clear explanation of the key tenants of psychoanalytic concepts such
as transference and countertransference make this hard to watch. I certainly appreciate the predicament of the therapist and all that he faces
as a person and once again I am led to believe that the professional practice of psychotherapy is very poorly portrayed in all TV series as well
as movies. The valuable work of systematic and careful assessment of problems, planning treatment and executing a good treatment plan are
often no where to be found and a well adjusted therapist ? No where in sight. Its really tiring.!
