Some film news for US fans - following the news that David Tennant's award winning movie Mad To Be Normal would be released in the USA on VOD in February, the production now has an updated release date.

Mad To Be Normal
David Tennant stars as 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. His methods caused outrage and controversy in the conservative medical profession but ultimately led to radical changes in attitudes and perceptions of mental health around the world.
Mad To Be Normal was written and directed by Robert Mullan and also stars Elisabeth Moss, 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 and the Naples International Film Festival.
