How to be Normal is an arthouse superhero film, a black coming-of-age comedy and a bitterly serious drama about the mechanism of psychiatric illness. A film that deals with this destructive force as it affects the surroundings of the people involved – and also contemplates the question of what it means in 2022 to have to grow up at last.
