Dorothy Mills (Dorothy) (2008)
A small war between science and religion is waged over the fate of a mentally ill teen in this thriller from writer and director Agnes Merlet. Jane Morton (Carice van Houten) is a psychotherapist who has been summoned to a small island community off the coast of Ireland to investigate a case of a profoundly disturbed young woman. Dorothy Mills (Jenn Murray) is a teenager who strangled a young girl outside a church for no apparent reason; she's being kept in the village hospital, where she displays a broad variety of bizarre and violent behavior. Jane soon diagnoses Dorothy as suffering from multiple personality disorder and attempts to sort out the various anti-social identities that battle for control of her mind. But Pastor Ross (Gary Lewis), head of the local church, has a different view of Dorothy's problem -- he's convinced Dorothy has been possessed by the devil, and he believes an exorcism is the cure, not therapy. A number of Ross's parishioners share his views and don't want Jane imposing her big-city ways on them, even as the doctor is getting to the roots of Dorothy's problems. … More

This is one of the Movies, at first you think alright this is those classic stuff. A child behaving psycho and killing around, the villagers are acting strange, and it will turn out that "satan" thing, but the twisting end was really sad and surprising. Those tend to harm you, from whom you never expect thing.More
it was different, but it was okay!
a bit surreal in the ending butother than that it was an entetaining enough movie, that kept me watching it!
A interesting thriller from Ireland.Good performances by the cast,but specially from Jenn Murray who plays this girl that suffers from multiple personality disorder,which has a creepy look about her.The problem about the film is that is slow in parts,specially in the beginning,but is an interesting & well written story that will deliver a good twist & nice conclusion to the mystery behind this tale.

I think it's pretty low budget, but u should definately watch it, if u like a psychological thriller. I usually forsee things in those types of movies, but now it took me a while, and I definately hadn't predict the end of it.
What a talented actress who plays Dorothy. And the shrink is also casted nice.
