What is The Crowded Room about?

Inspired by Daniel Keyes’ biography The Minds of Billy Milligan (which you can shop here), The Crowded Room focuses on Danny Sullivan (Tom Holland), a man who is arrested following his involvement in a shooting in New York City in 1979.

Danny is loosely based on Billy Milligan, who was the first person acquitted of a crime because of multiple-personality disorder, now known as dissociative identity disorder.

The captivating thriller is told through a series of interviews with curious interrogator Rya Goodwin (Amanda Seyfried) as she unravels the mysterious past that shaped him, and the twists and turns that will lead him to a life-altering revelation.
