Sneak Peek: Lifetime Releases Extended Trailer For ‘Call Me Crazy,’ Starring Jennifer Hudson And Octavia Spencer
A couple of weeks ago we told you about a new Lifetime movie, titled Call Me Crazy: A Five Film, starring Jennifer Hudson, Octavia Spencer, Brittany Snow, Ashley Judd, Chelsea Handler, Melanie Griffith and many other notables. Executive produced by Jennifer Anniston, the film will tackle mental illness
As previously stated, Call Me Crazy will consist of five shorts that follow the lives of five different characters impacted by mental illness. Spencer will be playing a psychotherapist, while Hudson will be playing a female soldier who is struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The network released an extended trailer for the film recently, and if the movie is as good as the trailer paints it out to be, then we are in for quite a treat. It really seems like the movie will offer an informative depiction of what life is like for those struggling with mental illness, while squashing silly stigmas that many of us have unknowingly picked up over the years.
“What’s it like hearing the voices?” Jason Ritter’s character asks Brittany Snow’s character, a law student who has learned that she’s been living with Schizophrenia.
“It’s terrifying,” she responds.
In another scene Hudson sheds light on the conflict faced by those who suffer from PTSD in silence, as they attempt to protect the military’s reputation.
“PTSD is real,” one character expresses.
“And it makes the miliatary look bad,” Hudson’s character regretfully chimes in.
The trailer closes with an emotional Hudson saying, “I don’t want people looking at me like I’m crazy.”
Call Me Crazy: A Five Film premieres on Lifetime Saturday, April 20th at 8 pm.
