Based on the memoir by Augusten Burroughs, this eccentric and astonishing story begins in the dysfunctional home of young Augusten, where his mother suffers from severe mental illness and his father is an alcoholic. As tensions mount, Augusten is sent to live with his mother’s psychiatrist, Dr. Finch, but Dr. Finch’s abode offers little guidance or security for the boy. Living in a rundown house with his wife, various patients and a plethora of children, both biological and adopted, the old psychiatrist is hardly sane himself. Because Dr. Finch does not believe in rules, Augusten’s sexual relationship with Finch’s grown son and many other unconventional experiences are openly accepted in the house. Growing up in these peculiar circumstances, it is startling that Augusten is still able to mature and cope with life.
