Great acting and decent storyline! 6/10
25 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: I quite enjoyed this interesting movie about a woman who has multiple personalities. One minute she's a stripper in a club who takes drugs and enjoys partying, then the next minute she is a intelligent Southern woman whose a white racist, even though she is black. She also has another personality called Genius whose a 7 year old girl, but she doesn't know how to control her alter egos so she seeks help from a psychotherapist who is interested in her case. As the movie is based around the 70's, they didn't have the different methods of dealing with this kind of illness so a lot of people just put it down to her being crazy. It didn't help that her main personality, Frankie, was a party animal and she smoked dope, but when she finally faces her problems, with the help of her doctor, they finally work out that her many personalities are down to an episode in her past. I honestly wasn't expecting that much from this movie because I hadn't heard of it before and Hall Berry hasn't really made anything that promising lately, but it's very well written and the fact that it's based on true events makes the concept interesting. The acting is top form from Hallen Berry and the chemistry between doctor and patient is brilliant. I did have a problem with the way that Berry switched into her different personalities because it seemed to happened out of the blue, but that's just me being picky. Anyway, I personally think that it deserved more money at the box office because of the effort that was put it from the actors and the emotional storyline. Watchable!

Round-Up: Halle Berry got hit with the Oscar bug, by coming out with a lot of dud movies after she had received her award. From the strange Cloud Atlas and the terrible Dark Tide and Catwoman, her career has been really gone downhill lately. Her saving grace has to be the role as Storm in the X-Men movies and she has now turned to TV with the series Extant which has got mixed reviews. At the age of 48, she still looks great but she really has to think before she picks her next roles. Stellan Skarsgard seems to be making the right choices as the professor in the Avengers and Thor franchise and he has also put in great performances in the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and the Nyphomaniac movies. Together they both worked well in this film but its another one of those movies that didn't get a big cash injection from the studio. 

Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: $700,000

I recommend this movie to people who are into their deep dramas about a woman who suffers with multiple personalities and seeks help from a psychotherapist. 6/10
