"Quality programs for adults that deal with the human condition are at a premium on television. For anyone whose psyche has been scarred by so-called reality TV, In Treatment is excellent therapy". --Donald Liebenson
Based on the hit Israeli drama Be Tipul, HBO TV series In Treatment follows a therapist, Paul (Gabriel Byrne), whose patients are steadily becoming more than he can handle. Each have their dark secrets, hidden traumas, and violent battles raging within. Among them are Laura (Melissa George), who has fallen in love with Paul; Alex (Blair Underwood), an Iraq veteran re-examining his life; Sophie (Mia Wasikowska), a suicidal teenager; and Jake and Amy (Josh Charles and Embeth Davidtz), a picture-perfect couple whose relationship is in jeopardy. This first series finds Paul returning to therapy himself, with an old colleague, Gina (Dianne Wiest), helping him come to terms with his mounting professional dilemmas. Like a series of one-act plays, most of the show's dialogue-heavy episodes take place within the confines of Paul's office. During its original broadcast schedule, each patient was 'seen' on a different night, five nights a week, offering viewers a unique experience of following their development. This collection presents the drama's complete first season.
