Because this is a true story it makes it that much more powerful & if the pacing was a little quicker this would be great
30 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Treatment is indefinite and integration is only beginning. The ultimate goal is acceptance." Frankie (Berry) is a go-go dancer with multiple personalities who is trying to straighten out her life. When things become dangerous for her she is taken to a hospital where she meets Oz (Skarsgård), a psychotherapist who tries to help her. He meets all of her personalities and talks with each of them in order to find out Frankie's past and what caused this problem. This is based on a true story. I'll start by saying I have not seen every single movie that Halle Berry has been in but of the ones I have seen I have never been impressed with her acting. Even when she won the Oscar for Monster's Ball I didn't think she deserved it, to me all she did was get naked and cry for a few hours, that doesn't impress me. That said, if I were to give her an award it would be for this one. She plays the different personalities so convincing and different that you believe she has this problem. As for the movie itself it is very good and worth watching even though it did seem to drag a little bit. The fact that this is a true story makes it that much more powerful and if the pacing was a little quicker this would be a fantastic movie. Overall, a movie that is very good and worth seeing especially for Berry's performance. I give this a B.
