Messy Screenplay with a Surprising Conclusion
4 August 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In New Orleans, Madison Walker (Sarah Roemer) suffers from dissociative identity disorder (DID) and tries to commit suicide. She is treated together with other patients by the psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Barnes (Elisabeth Shue). 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. In the end, nothing is real.

"Waking Madison" is an overrated drama with a messy screenplay that throws several situations apparently without timeline but a surprising conclusion. I was bored with this movie but fortunately I have watched it to the end, when there is a surprising revelation. "Waking Madison" has good performances and it is worth to be lenient and see to the very end. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "O 30o Dia" (The 30th Day")
