'Committed' takes place in 1954, when lobotomies were still legal, even considered "normalizing" a patient at the loss of their intelligence and personality. It wasn't until the 1970's that several states and provinces/territories in the United States and Canada outlawed lobotomies for being inhumane, unethical and immoral practices. In the current year of 2014, medication and counseling is most often used and is much more effective for the well-being of patients. See more
