Culver City, CA – April 1, 2016 – 10 DAYS IN A MADHOUSE is the true story of investigative journalist Nelly Bly, who feigns insanity to go undercover in the notorious Blackwell’s Island Woman’s Insane Asylum in New York City to expose corruption, abuse and murder. Bly’s investigation and subsequent article led to the successful shutdown of Blackwell’s Asylum and she became the first woman in history to write a serious investigative front page news story. Nellie Bly is recognized as one of the most important journalists in history.
Closely adapted from Nelly’s own book “10 Days in a Madhouse,” the story is her experience of the 10 grueling and horrifying days in the institution under deplorable conditions – but she never regretted it, because her expose for Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World Newspaper would rattle the nation to its core. 10 DAYS IN A MADHOUSE is written and directed by Timothy Hines (War of the Worlds; The True Story), and stars newcomer Caroline Barry as Nellie Bly, who brings Bly’s heroism and courage to life on screen. The film also stars Christopher Lambert (Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan; Highlander) and Kelly Le Brock (Weird Science, The Woman in Red).
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.
10 DAYS IN A MADHOUSE is currently in theaters in North America. Please visit the website for updated city and theater information. 10 DAYS IN A MADHOUSE also launches in April on premium VOD channels Amazon, iTunes, Google Play and Hoopla.
