On My Own (1992): Tale of a Boy and his Manic-Depressive Mother, Played by Judy Davis

Judy Davis renders a stellar performance in Antonio Tibaldi’s drama, On My Own, about a boy, Simon Henderson (played by Matthew Ferguson), a student at an Ontario boarding school.

All alone, while his father lives in Hong Kong, Matthew realizes–and then needs to come to terms with–that his mother is manic-depressive.

Made in 1991, the film was released in some European countries in 1992, and received its US premiere at the 1993 Sundance Film Fest.
