The theater lights go down and the screen lights up. It’s a movie about someone with schizophrenia, but what’s the plot? Serial killer? Savant? Someone helpless? As someone living with schizoaffective disorder, I’m sick of movies where a character with schizophrenia is a villain or genius, and I’m tired of seeing symptoms exaggerated or just flat-out incorrect. It doesn’t help people with schizophrenia or the image of the disease in society. But, coming out on February 12, 2021, is a movie about a character with schizophrenia that I actually want to see: “Fear of Rain.”

“Fear of Rain” details the experience of a teenage girl with schizophrenia as she struggles through symptoms and begins to suspect that a neighbor has kidnapped a child. But the new kid in school, Caleb, is the only one who believes her, and Rain isn’t even sure he exists.
