Borderline Personality Disorder or Narcissism in popular media?
May 12, 2014 3:04 PM Subscribe
I'm interested in movies/TV shows/books/graphic novels/cartoons (including anime) that depict a realistic mother-daughter (or any parent-child) relationship where the parent has borderline personality disorder and/or narcissism, and where the (potentially adult) child was able to deal with this successfully. Ideally, the specific traits--such as black/white thinking, rages, and inability to achieve stability (job, finances, relationships, etc), treating one child as a golden child and another as a scapegoat, etc--would be depicted with some detail. And if possible, the parent should be an empathetic character (i.e., not a 2-dimensional "bad guy").
