Storyline

In New Orleans, Madison Walker suffers from dissociative identity disorder (DID) and tries to commit suicide. She is treated together with other patients by the psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Barnes. Madison has an estranged mother, who is a religious fanatic woman, and her father was neglectful with her when she was younger. When Madison leaves the psychiatric hospital, she goes to her old apartment. Then she decides to lock herself in the apartment for thirty day expecting to find why she is so messed up since she has neither friend not a job. On the 30th day, Madison makes an important discovery about Dr. Barnes and her patients. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Beautiful.
3 June 2011 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Considering "Loving Annabelle" has been one of my favorite films for years, I went in to watching this with HIGH expectations. Amazingly, I wasn't disappointed; in fact, it surpassed my expectations.

I think my favorite thing about the film is that you can tell this every word was written from the heart; you can't help but be drawn in to the story as every word rings true. It's intense, heartbreaking, but beautiful. It shows the very real struggle of anyone who has gone through a mentally hard experience; wanting to give in and escape reality, whilst simultaneously having a fighting spirit which is not willing to let go just yet. And although the story itself is a very dark tale to be told, the message I came away with was a positive one; to not give up on yourself.

As someone who has been through a similar experience, I was amazed at how realistic it was. I think many people will be able to relate to the struggle Madison goes through on some level, and for those who can't- I think it will shed light on a topic which many believe is not a "real" illness. It definitely shows how a mental illness can be just as debilitating as a physical one, if not more so. And I admire Katherine for yet again taking a chance on covering a topic which is (unfortunately) still seen as controversial.

The storyline is full of twists and turns and keeps you immersed until the very last second. The whole cast is incredible, it's well-written, well acted, the cinematography is fantastic.... what's not to love?!
