Excellent movie.
21 August 2011 | by greyghost007See all my reviews

Fisrstly let me start by saying My partner has MPD, or D.I.D(dissociative identity disorder) as it is now known. Shelly Long's portrayal of Truddi Chase was excellent. Her ability to portray the 'switches' associated with this condition was spot on. I see it daily in my own partner, and Shelly Long nailed this performance with brilliant acting. Unfortunately some people don't believe this condition exists, but i can tell you it is true and to live with someone who suffers this disorder is a nightmare in itself.To see the agony and torment they go thru just to 'function' on a daily basis is enough to tear your heart out. Excellent movie, brilliantly acted and the actions of her Doctor played by Tom Conti was excellent and well done. 10/10, 5 stars.
