Oxford Screening Announced For David Tennant's Mad To Be Normal
A further screening for David Tennant's latest film project, Mad To Be Normal, has been announced and will see the eagerly awaited R.D Laing biopic showing at UPP in Oxford on Wednesday 12th April at 6.15pm. The screening will be followed by a special Q&A with the director Robert Mullan and cast members Tom Richards and James Utechin.
The film stars David as the renowned Scottish psychiatrist Ronnie Laing, the so called acid-Marxist who rejected the accepted medical model of mental illness in order to focus on the personal emotional journeys of each of his patients. In 1965, Laing and a group of colleagues created the Philadelphia Association and started a unique psychiatric community project at Kingsley Hall, where patients and therapists lived together. He was often criticised for his techniques, which included the occasional use of the drug LSD.
Mad To Be Normal, which also stars Michael Gambon and Gabriel Byrne, was filmed at various locations across Yorkshire and London in 2016. The movie is a Gizmo Films production with Bad Penny Productions and GSP Studios.
