Mental illness is something that needs to be out there in the open more and become less stigmatized. A Lifetime movie is getting mental illness out into the open. Although I would have been a little more excited about this if OCD or generalized anxiety disorder was in there, I am excited about it none the less!
Through the five shorts named after each title character — Lucy, Eddie, Allison, Grace and Maggie – powerful relationships built on hope and triumph raise a new understanding of what happens when a loved one struggles with mental illness.
“Call Me Crazy: A Five Film” stars Academy Award and Golden Globe winners Jennifer Hudson, Melissa Leo and Octavia Spencer, Sarah Hyland, Sofia Vassilieva, Brittany Snow, Ernie Hudson, Jason Ritter, three-time Emmy Award winner Jean Smart, Lea Thompson, Oscar nominee Melanie Griffith and Chelsea Handler.
