David Tennant (Doctor Who) and Elizabth Moss (Madmen, The Handmaid's Tale) star in this drama about 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 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.. Winner of Best International Feature and Best International Film at Galway Film Fleadh.. "David Tennant is on pugnacious, mercurial and beady-eyed form in this very interesting and absorbing film." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
