The Lib Dem connection to a new film about R D Laing

David Tennant and Elisabeth Moss start filming Mad to be Normal, about Scottish psychiatrist R D Laing.

From Screen Daily:

Shooting has begun in the UK on the project which charts the story of world-renowned Scottish psychiatrist Laing and his acolytes at Kingsley Hall, East London, during the 1960s.

Additional cast includes Michael Gambon (Gosford Park) and Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects).

The film will be produced by London-based Gizmo Films, in collaboration with GSP studios and Bad Penny Productions, the production company led by Phin Glynn (The Unbeatables).

There’s a Twitter account for the film, too.

And, much as I don’t like linking to the Daily Fail, they have pictures of Tennant in costume.

I’ll certainly be first in the queue when it comes out.

But my interest is sparked not just because I’m a massive Tennant fan. Here’s a quote from the Executive Producer:
