Culver City, CA – May 4, 2016 – 10 DAYS IN A MADHOUSE brings to the screen the story of Nellie Bly’s trailblazing exposé for Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World Newspaper about the 10 unspeakable days she spent under cover as a mental patient in the notorious Blackwell’s Island Woman’s Insane Asylum in New York City. The explosive account of her harrowing experience rocked the media world – and society – to its core, and ultimately led to the successful shutdown of Blackwell’s Asylum.
Throughout her life and career, Nellie Bly spoke up for the underprivileged and helpless, and defied society’s expectations about women. In 10 DAYS IN A MADHOUSE, Bly feigns insanity to expose institutional corruption, abuse and murder. On this her 152nd birthday, her fearless and adventurous spirit is still an inspiration to women everywhere, and we celebrate her belief that women can do and be anything they want. 10 DAYS IN A MADHOUSE stars newcomer Caroline Barry, who was chosen from 8,000 contestants through a star search with the assistance of Google and YouTube. The film also features Christopher Lambert (Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan; Highlander) and Kelly Le Brock (Weird Science, The Woman in Red). 10 DAYS IN A MADHOUSE is written and directed by Timothy Hines (War of the Worlds; The True Story).
10 DAYS IN A MADHOUSE had a sold out US premiere at the esteemed Bentonville Film Festival, Geena Davis’ festival celebrating women and diversity. The film then went on to have a successful international premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. It is currently in theaters in North America, and launched with a star studded red carpet premiere at the AMC Empire 25 in New York’s Times Square.
