Brilliant drama from director Katherine Brooks
Waking Madison is a brilliant film, from the acting, to the story, to the cinematography. New Orleans provides the perfect backdrop to tell the story of Madison, a girl who, after a suicide attempt, locks herself in her apartment for 30 days to try and deal with her inner demons.
This story feels so real and true that you cannot help but to be drawn in and feel connected. Through the movie, you feel hurt and lost and confused right along with Madison. There are many psychological twists and turns and soon you become lost in her world, just like she is.
This movie is amazingly directed and filmed. There are so many hints and clues and tiny pieces that all come together in the end, you will be left amazed. Definitely one you will want to watch over and over, and you will pick up new things every time you do. This is the kind if movie that makes you think...
Director Katherine Brooks really outdid herself with Waking Madison. It is a must see movie, if I've ever seen one. <3
