Storyline

Dr. Dupont arrives at a mental facility to apply for a staff position. World famous Dr. Quilly interviews her, and has her sign papers. She is thrilled to get the job, and is shown her room. However, confusion with her room being on the same floor as the patients' soon turns to panic as she is told that she is a "guest"- not a doctor, and the papers she signed were not job forms, but commitment papers.

User Reviews

Decent fare that captivates you for about 75% of the movie
4 August 2011 | by caigedSee all my reviews

Thank Goodness I had already seen the movie before I searched for the movie on IMDb because the only other review is absolutely horrendous, in the sense that it's not just spoils the plot of the move it completely ruins it. Basically the other reviewer reveals every single thing that's worth finding out for yourself.

I must be going through a phase because this is another TV movie that's left me a bit impressed. It's not eerie nor chilling but there is a definite mystery that intrigues you in the first 15 mins. By the time you unravel the mystery you may as well just finish watching it, and that's not a bad thing.

The plot's semi decent, offering some neat twists and turns that keeps you wondering whether Celeste is really a psychiatrist or if she's delusional. And then there also some other weird instances that keeps the plot ticking over.

Andrea Roth puts in a good performance in the lead role and she's convincing enough as a psychiatrist. Many of the women cast in a lead TV role have mostly been chosen for one thing: their looks, and often enough they don't fit the bill of the character. But Andrea pull its off. While some of her actions in trying to escape are a little over the top and ludicrous you do feel for her while she's trying to hang onto her sanity.

If you have the time and want to watch something with a cup of tea or hot chocolate on a cold night I'd recommend this movie. It certainly beats out some of the Hollywood titles out there at the moment.
