Movie Info

When the pressures of leading a normal existence become too overwhelming to bear, a troubled New Orleans woman suffering from Disassociate Identity Disorder locks herself away for 30 days in a desperate attempt to make sense of her fractured life. Madison Walker (Sarah Roemer) is a New Orleans phone-sex operator who is plagued by multiple personalities. Suicidal and desperate after a series of personal tragedies, Madison retreats to her apartment and begins documenting her harrowing mental descent in a series of soul-searching video diary entries. Should Madison fail to find some level of peace at the end of her 30-day experiment, she will take her own life. Assisting Madison in her despondent struggle for sanity is Dr. Elizabeth Barnes (Elisabeth Shue), a specialist who does her sincere best to help the disturbed young patient discern the real people in her life from those who are simply conjured up by her disorder. Taryn Manning, Erin Kelly, and Imogen Poots co-star in this probing psychological drama from Loving Annabelle director Katherine Brooks.

Critic Reviews for Waking Madison

All Critics (2)

Consumed with ambiguity and obvious mood while its critical sense of humanity is pushed aside for low-budget dreamscape showboating. Writer/director Katherine Brooks has passion, but her feel for storytelling is seriously tangled.

(It) boasts strong technical elements and some fine performances ..., a promising but ultimately undistinguished stepping stone in Brooks' filmmaking career.
