Ms. Magazine raved about Caroline Barry’s performance as Nellie Bly, saying, “Nellie Bly’s heroism and courage truly come to life on the screen, thanks to the work of talented up-and-coming actor Caroline Barry. Barry is instantly magnetic as Bly, and it’s hard not to root for and fall in love with her character as the story progresses.”
“A MUST SEE MOVIE!” MS. Magazine. 10 Days In A Madhouse starring Caroline Barry and Christopher Lambert now playing in US theaters gets another glowing review. This time from MS. Magazine, the original feminist magazine founded by Gloria Steinem.
Ms. Magazine just published a glowing review of 10 Days In A Madhouse. In the article titled “Fearless Feminist Reporter Nellie Bly Hits the Big Screen”, the magazine calls the film a “must see”! The movie is about the true story of legendary reporter Nellie Bly, who at the young age of 23, feigned mental illness in order to infiltrate a notorious women’s lunatic asylum. Like the article says, Bly’s life story is “perfect for the big screen.” She was an incredible woman, a “feminist, adventurer, and ultimate risk taker.” Nellie Bly’s brave journey into the madhouse made advances for the women’s rights movement, as well as the field of journalism. Director Timothy Hines was passionate about telling the world her story, and according to Ms. Magazine, he’s done a brilliant job.
The beautiful and talented Caroline Barry was chosen to play Nellie Bly out of 8,000 hopefuls in a worldwide search. Ms. Magazine raved about her performance, saying, “Nellie Bly’s heroism and courage truly come to life on the screen, thanks to the work of talented up-and-coming actor Caroline Barry. Barry is instantly magnetic as Bly, and it’s hard not to root for and fall in love with her character as the story progresses.”
The article goes on to talk about some of the very disturbing scenes of the movie. For example, the “freezing cold baths, threadbare and sullied gowns, disgusting living conditions, stale food and beatings from the institution’s support staff.” Hines did a great job in accurately portraying the horrors that really went on behind closed doors. Once Bly is released from the asylum, she learns that she was there for only ten days. For the audience, it felt like much longer. This is a success on Hines’ part, as it is “certainly a mind-boggling realization that Bly witnessed and experienced all this brutality in little more than a week.”
Ms. Magazine closes the article out by talking about how “films like 10 Days in a Madhouse that feature incredible and aspirational female role models deserve to be made, but are largely ignored.” The male vs. female dynamic in Hollywood is a topic that has amassed much discussion lately. Hopefully 10 Days In A Madhouse will help to push forward women in film, in the same way that Nellie Bly pushed forward women in journalism.
