Think today’s reporters are brave? They’ve got nothing on Nellie Bly, who pulled off one of the most courageous feats in the history of investigative reporting. Inspired by true events, “Escaping the Madhouse” stars Emmy®-Award winner Christina Ricci as the pioneering journalist who gets herself committed in order to expose the horrendous conditions at New York City’s notorious Women’s Lunatic Asylum. Once inside, her unwillingness to submit to authority results in unspeakable torture at the hands of the head nurse (Judith Light) — and a reckoning with her own sanity.
