Call Me Crazy

While many blogs out there are talking about how awesome Jennifer Aniston’s legs looked in those short black shorts she wore to the premiere of Lifetime’s “Call Me Crazy: A Five Film,” I’ll be discussing a slightly more charitable angle. Starring a slew of talented actors including Melissa Leo, Jennifer Hudson, Octavia Spencer, Jean Smart, Brittany Snow and Sarah Hyland, "Call Me Crazy" is actually a compilation of five short films centered on mental illness.

Each of the shorts -- named after its main characters Lucy, Eddie, Allison, Grace and Maggie –- shows how powerful relationships built on hope and triumph result in a new understanding of what happens when a loved one struggles with mental illness.

Lifetime Television partnered with The National Alliance for Mental Illnesses (NAMI) for the film, which sheds light on this important cause and reduces the stigma surrounding those who live with mental illnesses (one in four adults in the U.S.). Grab a hanky and tune into the world premiere this Saturday, April 20 at 8:00PM ET/PT.
