The true story of a young woman named Sybil, whose childhood was so harrowing to her that she developed at least 13 different personalities.
This made for TV film is powerful because of the disturbing and sympathetic performance of Sally Field as Sybil. Joanne Woodward is the calming force in this film which is psychologically disturbing at times.
SYBIL was originally aired as a made-for-television NBC miniseries that made a huge impact on issues like psychology, mental illness (Dissociative Identity Disorder) and child abuse. Not an exact rendering of Flora Rheta Schreiber's book, but it still packs a chilling wallop after all these years. There are several cuts out there but I suggest finding the full 198 minute version to appreciate this drama. All performances, including Sally Field, were top-notch.
Top drawer acting. A disturbing performance from Sally Fields. The run time is a tad long but watching Sybil going gaga passes the time.
This is a great movie about a schizophrenic lady. Sort of reminds me of a drugged out candykid raver that I knew on Myspace years ago from Pittsburgh. Hi my names Jenny, Hi my names Lucy. Rofl. 5 stars.
Seriously though, Sally Field is really scary in this Film and makes you feel bad or sorry for the plight of Sybil. I cried during this Film and found myself disturbingly attracted to Sally Field at the end.
I knew Mary Todd Lincoln was crazy but I didn't think she was this crazy
Great performances by two great actresses .
