Mad To Be Normal
There was no more charismatic or controversial a figure during the swinging ‘60s than Scottish psychiatrist R D Laing. Dubbed “the white Martin Luther King” and the “high priest of anti-psychiatry”, Laing was as famous as Dylan. In 1965, he established Kingsley Hall in London as a medication-free community for those seriously affected by schizophrenia. His methods flew in the face of a medical establishment that considered Laing a dangerous radical. Mad to Be Normal offers a powerful account of Laing’s Kingsley Hall experiment with a stunning performance from David Tennant that truly gets under the skin of an utterly compelling figure.
As yet there are no venue details for the general release of the film; however, information from the Film Distributors Association suggests that it will be shown in at least 25 venues nationwide.
The producers have said that they hope to confirm international release details shortly.
