Sienna Miller in 'See the Light'

In a new music video, “See the Light”, by The Hours, British actress Sienna Miller appears as a young woman who is desperate, without hope, and on the brink of suicide. Wearing hospital attire, we see Miller speaking with a psychiatrist, undergoing an MRI scan, and hand-painting with the blood of cows.

Sienna Miller’s acting in the video is nothing short of a stellar performance. When viewing the video, I felt as though I were watching a real person go through severe mental trauma and anguish. Which is why, to me, the song by The Hours, despite having an ultra-sad video, is a song of encouragement and hope as the lyrics say to "see the light and hold on," as if a desperate cry for those who feel there is nothing left to live for, to continue living.
