|David Tennant and Elisabeth Moss|
Mad To Be Normal reveals the story of R.D. Laing, the famous psychiatrist and one of Scotland's greatest ever minds. Working at 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.
David Tennant plays Laing and Elisabeth Moss his girlfriend in this fascinating insight into Laing's controversial work. The two have a convincing on-screen chemistry. As the story unfolds, it proves difficult to sustain a relationship when boundaries between personal lives and work have become blurred.
