USA: Mad To Be Normal VOD Release Now Available For Pre-Order
US residents can now pre-order the digital release of David Tennant's award-winning movie Mad To Be Normal, due for release on February 16th. David Tennant plays R.D. Laing in the film based on the revolutionary psychiatrist's life and works.
Mad To Be Normal focuses on the community that R.D. Laing set up at Kingsley Hall in London in the late 1960s where people experiencing mental illness and medical practitioners lived together as equals. Laing is now considered one of Scotland’s greatest ever minds, but during the 1960s and 70s, his practices, which included the rejection of prescribed medication and experimenting with LSD, were considered controversial, even dangerous, by his peers and caused outrage in the medical profession. Today Laing is recognised as a key figure in changing attitudes to and perceptions of mental health around the world. The film was written and directed by Robert Mullan and co-stars Elisabeth Moss, Michael Gambon and Gabriel Byrne.
Mad To Be Normal will also be released on DVD on Tuesday 13th March - click here to order
