MAD TO BE NORMAL
Based on the remarkable true story of Doctor R.D. Laing.
Brilliant, controversial, revolutionary.
To some he’s certifiable. To others he’s a saint.
“In MAD TO BE NORMAL, David Tennant of ‘Doctor Who’ stars as 1960’s celebrity psychiatrist R.D.Laing (David Tennant) who revolutionized the treatment of people diagnosed as ‘mad’. Working out of Kingsley Hall in East London throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Laing performed various daring experiments on people who were diagnosed as mentally disturbed. His revolutionary methods involved experimenting with LSD on his patients and practicing a form of self-healing known as metanoia, causing outrage and controversy in the medical profession and radically changing attitudes and perceptions of mental health around the world.”
Well, it sure sounds like he was a colorful man… Did he cure anyone though?
The US release date of the movie is set to February 16, 2018 (On Demand and Digital).
