Summary, etc.:
Committed is the story of actress and leftist iconoclast Frances Farmer. In 1935, Farmer became an overnight Hollywood sensation; within ten years she was in a state mental hospital. Highly stylized and moodily provocative, Committed offers a multi-layered look at this culturally defiant woman, going beyond the personal to explore the political and social attitudes of the time.
