First trailer and one sheet for Mad To Be Normal arrives online

GSP Studios International have recently released their first trailer and one sheet for Robert Mullan's (Letters To Sofija) Mad To Be Normal.

Despite the title sounding a little like a dodgy romantic comedy, it is actually a biopic of world renowned Scottish psychiatrist Ronald David Laing (David Tennant) and his colleagues at Kingsley Hall, East London in the 1960s. He pushed back against traditional theories of serious mental dysfunction, working from the idea that the expressed feelings of the individual patient or client were valid descriptions of lived experience rather than simply as symptoms of some separate or underlying disorder.

Writer and director Robert Mullan, who has written several books on the man, penned the script and is directing, and this one has been bubbling away in development even before it was announced at the Cannes Film Festival last year.

Tennant is joined in the main cast for this one by Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire (2005) co-star Michael Gambon, Elisabeth Moss (The One I Love), Gabriel Byrne (In Treatment) and David Bamber (The King's Speech), and will arrive in cinemas this Spring.
