Mad To Be Normal is based on the story of world-renowned Scottish psychiatrist RD Laing who opened a unique anti-psychiatry community at Kingsley Hall, East London, during the 1960s to offer medication-free treatment to people diagnosed with mental illness. 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.
David Tennant stars as Laing alongside Michael Gambon, Elisabeth Moss and Gabriel Byrne, The film was written and directed by Robert Mullan and is produced by Gizmo Films and Bad Penny Productions.
Mad To Be Normal is currently screening in selected cinemas across the UK.
