Mad To Be Normal
David Tennant of Doctor Who fame stars as 1960s celebrity psychiatrist R.D. Laing who revolutionized the treatment of people diagnosed as ‘mad’. Mad To Be Normal reveals the story of R.D. Laing, the famous psychiatrist and 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 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.

Mad To Be Normal was written and directed by Robert Mullan and also stars Gabriel Byrne, Michael Gambon, Olivia Poulet and David Bamber. The film premiered in the USA earlier this year as part of the Newport Beach Film Festival.

The film is due to be released on VoD in the USA in February 2018 following a theatrical release.

The Naples International Film Festival is hosted by Artis-Naples, the premier centre for the performing and visual arts in Southwest Florida. The Festival runs between October 26-29 with other films in the schedule including Stuck, Jasper Jones and The Ballad Of Lefty Brown.
