Entertainment Weekly - 07/21/2006
"[The film] launched Field as a serious actress. Today, SYBIL still packs one helluva punch." -- Grade: A-

Description by OLDIES.com:

Meet Peggy, an aggressive nine-year old...Vicky, a sophisticated young lady...Mary, a grandmother. Meet Vanessa, Mike, Sid and everyone who lives in the mind of Sybil Dorsett. Sybil doesn't know about her secret selves. But she does know something is wrong, so terribly wrong that it may drive her to suicide.

This wrenching true story of a woman whose tortured childhood shattered her into multiple personalities won four Emmys, including Outstanding Special (Drama) and Outstanding Actress for Sally Field, who portrays Sybil. Field is a revelation in the role that established TV's former "The Flying Nun" as one of America's most respected actresses. And Joanne Woodward is the film's anchor as the wise, tenacious doctor who is determined to help Sybil find herself. And find peace.

Product Description:

Director Daniel Petrie's awe-inspiring and brutal drama, based on a real-life story, made television history when it was originally aired in 1977. Sally Field gives an outstanding award-winning performance as Sybil, a disturbed young woman who suffers from multiple personality behavior. Living alone in a New York apartment, Sybil is tormented by flashbacks and visions of her extremely painful childhood. Unable to live a normal life, she meets Dr. Cornelia Wilbur (Joanne Woodward), a kindhearted psychiatrist who becomes committed to helping Sybil heal the incredible wounds that haunt her. Desperate to make Sybil understand her illness, Dr. Wilbur begins a series of treatments and uncovers the 16 personalities that make up the fractured personalities of Sybil. Forced to face unspeakable torture at the hands of her mother (Jane Hoffman), Sybil is slowly able to heal her inner self with the support, guidance, and love of Dr. Wilbur. The incredible 11-year odyssey of these two brave women is brought to the screen with powerful and deeply moving performances by Field and Woodward. Together they portray a deeply touching and inspiring true story of love and determination conquering pain and isolation.
