Halle Berry stars in this independent drama based on a true story about a popular go-go dancer in the ’70s who suffers from dissociative identity disorder.

Stellan Skarsgard, of the Avengers:Age of Ultron, stars with Berry as her psychiatrist.

Phylicia Rashad of The Cosby Show and Chandra Wilson of Grey’s Anatomy co-star along with Berry.

Berry is very good in this emotionally demanding role. She won an Image award for her performance and was nominated for a Golden Globe as well.

It deals with interracial relationships and how an African American family handles mental illness.

It is a very engaging film.
