5.0 out of 5 stars Sybil DVD
Very rare to be able to purchase a region 2 DVD of this moving film. I saw this originally on TV many years ago and it made such an impression on me, I longed to see it again. It has taken me over a year to source this DVD in the UK, and although the price was high, I just had to purchase it. Watching a young Sally Field playing such a complicated character just...

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality
I love this film and have waited a long time to buy it after searching for many many months and was very disappointed to receive this only to find that when I watched it, it was very jerky, kept freezing and loosing sound. I had to keep taking it out of my DVD machine and re- inserting it and scrolling to where I had left off. Very disappointed!!!

Watching a young Sally Field playing such a complicated character just reminded me why I am still a huge fan of this actress.

Really looked forward to revisiting this film as watched it on video many years ago. It did not disappoint and I was once again impressed by the superb acting skills of Sally Field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant performances from Sally Field and Joanne Woodward, 6 May 2013
This review is from: Sybil (Two-Disc Special Edition) Joanne Woodward, Sally Field, Brad Davis (DVD) (Audio CD)
*SPOILERS* I have watched Sally Field in the syrupy TV series "Brothers & Sisters" but hadn't realised what a talented actress she can be. In Sybil she plays a young woman who has developed multiple personalities as a way of coping with her terrifying childhood. Alone in New York she is isolated, poverty stricken and finding it increasingly more difficult to cope with hiding her mental illness. Joanne Woodward is equally brilliant as Dr Wilbur, Sybil's psychiatrist. Her compassionate performance is very convincing. This isn't an easy film to watch, especially as it is based on the true story of a woman named Shirley Mason. There were a couple of scenes where I had to look away. This story demonstrates the devastating consequences of adults turning a blind eye to child abuse. A brilliant and emotional film.

I enjoyed watching this again as it had been a very long time since I last saw this film. I was as good as I remembered it to be but be warned it is very disturbing at times and could be distressing to some people. Wonderfully acted by Sally field
