This paper investigates the discourse of the psychopathic character Annie Wilkes in the movie Misery 1990. It focuses on the discourse of Annie in the front-stage and back-stage and how her personality differs in both cases. In collecting the data, I transcribed Annie?s conversations and the chosen conversations represent Annie?s personality in both front-stage and back-stage. The analysed data shows a huge difference between Annie in the front-stage and Annie in the back-stage. Annie in the front stage looks lovely and friendly while in the back stage she speaks in a violent, harsh and threating way.
