Sarah Michelle Gellar is Mental in 'Veronika Decides to Die' Trailer
After facing monsters in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and creepy ghosts in The Grudge, this time Sarah Michelle Gellar finds terror in her own mind. Veronika Decides to Die is an adaptation of Paulo Coelho's book of the same name, and the first trailer for the thriller has arrived, even though the film was shot in 2008 and release internationally in 2009. The story follows a twentysomething woman who decides to kill herself, despite the fact that she seems to have it all: youth and beauty, boyfriends and a loving family, a fulfilling job. But when her sleeping pill fueled suicide attempt finds her waking up in a mental hospital, she's told she only has days to live. Is this a twisted It's a Wonderful Life remake or something?
Here's the first trailer for Emily Young's Veronika Decides to Die, originally from Yahoo:
