You know nothing.
Dorothy has been accused of nearly strangling a baby in her care. Enter Jane, the court appointed psychologist sent to evaluate her mental state. I don't want to say any more and ruin the twists, curves and flat out blind sides this film delivers.
DOROTHY MILLS is fascinating, haunting, creepy. On certain levels, it reminded me of THE WICKER MAN. No, not that horrible remake with Nicholas Cage. The stunning original 1973 WICKER MAN. The isolation of the island and the pagan images during the dance evolved that whispful quality of THE WICKER MAN.
Everything about this story works. The characters, the setting, the twist within a twist within a twist. DOROTHY MILLS is like a Russian puzzle box. You think you know where you're going and there you are, inside another box.
I can't recommend DOROTHY MILLS enough! Just be prepared to lose the next couple hours and be mesmerized. It's nothing short of breathtaking.
Spoiler alert: Don't read further if you don't want to know about the storyline:
It's patterned after The Three Faces of Eve. That's my best guess. So, that pretty much tells you where it's all coming from. Right down to the "history" of the "why". I look at this as a remake of Eve, but from a different view. It's a child, not an adult telling their story. I liked the Eve movie, so this one was right on target.
A psychiatrist is assigned to work on the case of a disturbed young girl.
Review - 2/5
On the cover it says 'A contemporary take on The Exorcist', yeah not really. This is absolutely nothing like The Exorcist nor is it as entertaining or scary. I almost fell asleep at the agonizing slow pace I had to deal with the first hour. It picks up towards the end, but it's not anything new. Tried to throw some awful twist into it, and frankly I wasn't shocked or amazed. Can we please stop making possession/split personality films. Geez!
I can only say "wow"... this film boosts the performance of a lifetime. Young Jenn Murray is simply amazing as this young girl suffering from multiple personalities that may or may not be the work of the dead.
She is simply amazing!
The story is quite simple: a doctor from the mainland goes to a remote Irish island where 15 year old Dorothy Mills seems to have murdered a baby. As she starts to know Dorothy and spend some time with her, she uncovers the many personalities inhabiting the girl's body. There is an innocent 3 year old girl... a boy who protects Dorothy from killing herself... a slut who teases the town's men... and Duncan who is a little more violent than the others.
It all seems to be a simple case of multiple personalities until young Dorothy talks to the doctor as her lost son. And suddenly we start to understand that there's more to the town's dead than we can see... because they all end up in Dorothy's body.
This film is much more a FABULOUS supernatural/psychological drama than plain horror. And in its own right, it is truly amazing. The story is magnificently well told with unbelievable performances. The direction is sharp, precise and masterful. Everything here is right.
Don't expect any gore.
Expect an inexpensive Irish film that will give you an amazing experience seldom found in films with 10 times the budget.

What a boring movie. The premise is okay, but it just moves so slowly. I'm a fan of suspense, but this builds at an utter snail's pace only to reveal a predictable... Read morePublished on October 18, 2013 by PaprikaDonut
