    Well Susanna's narration in the beginning of the film was her saying:

    "Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60's. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted."

    I think the title just means the everything that happened to her was due to unfotunate interruptions in her life such as sexual relations with men and expectations from her family. Maybe these interruptions prevented herfrom living a normal life and if certain things hadn't have happened maybe she would've been like any other teenager and not have ended up attempting suicide, being in a mental institution, suffering from borderline personailty disorder etc.

    So i think it means simply what it says: a girl whose life was interrupted.

    Hope this helps! :)

    It's all about how this girl was thought to be insane and taken basically against her will to an insane asylum. So, it's supposed to show how her life was interrupted, and how she was just a normal girl before.
