Charlie Plummer Discusses Playing A Teenager With Schizophrenia In Words On Bathroom Walls [Exclusive Interview]


While some mental illnesses are empathised there are others that are still not understood. Schizophrenia is an illness that is not easy to approach.
Words On Bathroom Walls is a movie that can help open conversation for those living with someone with schizophrenia or living with this mental illness. 

This film is based on the novel with the same title written by Julia Walton. The story centers around a high school student, Adam (Charlie Plummer). He doesn’t only deal with the daily teenage struggles, but is adapting living with schizophrenia and tries to keeping his diagnosis a secret. Unfortunately, he has an episode during Chemistry class that leads to an accidental injury with a classmate. The school expels Adam in the middle of his senior year and is forced to transfer to a Catholic school. Here he meets Maya (Taylor Russell), a bright girl that gives him affection and comfort to helps him triumph despite all the challenges.
