Summary
After seeing a less-than-conventional psychiatrist for her problems at home, getting too many prescriptions and too much bad advice, a mother ends her marriage and sends her young son to live with the doctor and his odd family.
Running with Scissors is based on the personal memoir by Augusten Burroughs. Growing up in the 1970s young Augusten (Joseph Cross) was living a middle-class existence with an alcoholic father (Baldwin) and a bipolar mother (Bening), an unpublished poet with delusions of becoming famous. When his parents divorced, Augustens mother sends him to live with her wildly unorthodox psychiatrist and his eccentric extended family. The story portrays an outlaw childhood where rules were unheard of, the Christmas tree stayed up all year round, where Valium was consumed like candy, and if things got dull, an electroshock-therapy machine could provide entertainment.
