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

Excellent movie, excellent cast. A story that needs to be told.
3 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

"Waking Madison" is a cleverly executed film with an extremely talented cast.

The cast of "Waking Madison" deliver excellent performances, with great emotional depth and complexity.Elisabeth Shue, Sarah Roemer,Will Patton and Francis Conroy really bring some incredible acting chops to the table.

Writer/Director Katherine Brooks does an amazing job of capturing the essence and complexity of a mentally ill person. Brooks approaches the subject of mental illness with great intensity,but leaves the audience feeling hopeful.

The cinematography in the film is absolutely beautiful, and the use of symbolism is very well done.
