Great Art House Film!
2 January 1999 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

Although the Woman Inside is not a perfect film, it is really quite extraordinary for its time. The music and the direction are dreadful, some of the performances are quite good. Ms. Manon's performance as Hollis/Holly was quite powerful and courageous and definitely before its time. Ms. Blondell's performance was also quite good. I feel that this movie is an excellent commentary on the tortured lives of some people.
