Given based on a true story and from a time where such things as who would go with who was so much stronger (not that it is not less in other places). IT is amazing what the mind will do to 'protect'. To know what happened in the end to the real person was interesting.

A dancer in a tittie bar who's troubled with dissociative identity disorder. You can guess ahead of time how much of the scene-time is devoted to skin wiggling, bouncing bumping and grinding. The other parts are about the woman and her mental problems.

This had a lot of holds so i was thinking it would be good. Basically about an exotic dancer with multiple personalities. Was very predictable and slow.

Halle Berry gives an Oscar worthy performance in this film. Brilliant!

Halle Berry came across a story of a Southern African-American woman who overcame dissociative identity disorder, an extremely rare mental disorder who, after help from a psychiatrist, went to college and became a college professor. Previous films exploring this illness are The Three Faces of Eve and Sybil. Berry co-produced this indie because she was fascinated with the idea of playing a person with three different personalities that would come and go when needed. This film’s release was delayed by several years, perhaps because of the great difficulty of exploring this complicated illness in a 101 minute film.

This movie is about a woman with multiple personalities, Halle Berry did a superb job of binging this movie alive.

Sorry. Berry can't act and the only reason she ever won an Oscar was because she went totally nude and over the top. And here is another film where one of her breasts is inexplicably hanging out as she runs down a street. Ridiculous storyline and completely sub-par acting.

Wonderful cast! I am always thrilled to see a cast of great African-American actors/actresses.
This film touched on a subject matter that is often considered taboo in many of our communities. Kudos to Phylicia Rashad, Halle Berry & Chandra Wilson for successfully taking it head on.

This movie is really nothing more than Halle Berry's extremely slick and further promotion of DESTROYING THE BLACK RACE via interracial relationships,disguised as a suspense thriller about mental illness period.Nice try Halle Berry,but i know about your consistent MALICE and BITTERNESS against black men still in 2014 and beyond until you Die in real life,because you hooked up with the wrong black males in real life willingly.IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO GROW UP HALLE BERRY AKA FORGIVE THE BLACK MALES THAT DID YOU WRONG A LONG TIME AGO AND FORGIVE BLACK MEN PERIOD.LET YOUR GRUDGES GO RIGHT NOW BECAUSE IT'S LITERALLY KILLING YOU CAREER WISE AS WELL AS HEALTH WISE PERIOD,BUT YOU DON'T HEAR ME THOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
