Mad To Be Normal is to be released in the USA via video on demand on 6 February 2018.
David Tennant stars as 1960’s celebrity psychiatrist R.D.Laing who revolutionised the treatment of people diagnosed with mental illness. Mad To Be Normal reveals the story of Ronnie Laing, one of Scotland’s greatest ever minds. Working out of Kingsley Hall in East London throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Laing performed various daring experiments. 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.
Michael Gambon, Elisabeth Moss, Adam Paul Harvey and Gabriel Byrne co star. The film was written and directed by Robert Mullan and is produced by Gizmo Films and Bad Penny Productions.
