"Mad Love" is a 1995 drama/romance film starring Drew Barrymore, Chris O'Donnell and Matthew Lillard, directed by Antonia Bird. The screenplay is written by Paula Milne. The original music score is composed by Andy Roberts. The film was marketed with the tagline "A wild and sexy adventure!"


Matt Leland (O'Donnell) falls in love with Casey Roberts (Barrymore), the new girl in school from Chicago. After Matt helps Casey escape from an acute psychiatric ward, they run away as they battle her further fall into borderline personality disorder.

Casey is eccentric in nature. Her carefree attitude is attributed to a part of her manic depression in which she can experience severe highs and severe lows of emotion. It is from this truth much of the film's central appeal and plot are based upon, in that her mutual love and joy can be so extreme yet dangerously flawed.

Heading toward Mexico, Casey begins to experience the depression again. Matt, trying to help her, becomes scared. After another suicide attempt, they return to Seattle and their families, where Casey agrees to medication for her problem.
