Fact-based drama of an amazing survivor of incest and torture who triumphantly functions in her adult life with multiple personalities.
27 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shelley Long is brilliant starring as Truddi Chase in this fact-based TV movie. Long's wide range of talent shows full force as she enacts every incident and nails each personality's character with such seamless grace, as if she herself was Truddi Chase. Co-star Alan Fudge captures his role well as Truddi's husband.

I have never seen such a credible, factual movie created so in sync (almost word for word) with the book which it was based on, "When Rabbit Howls", written by Truddi Chase.

Directed by Lamont Johnson, each scene guides the viewers through Truddi's life, with narrated childhood memories, accurately depicting her life's experiences without overwhelming violence. Clever ending shows Truddi's triumph over her stepfather's criminal abuse of her. Well done!
