When patients' rights lawyer Colette Hughes goes to meet her new client, Eleanor Riese, a patient in the psychiatric unit of a San Francisco hospital, she has no idea that besides taking on an uphill legal battle to improve treatment for mental patients in hospitals, she is meeting a woman who will make it her mission to transform Colette's workaholic life.
The story was first mentioned to Helena Bonham Carter 13 years ago, with Helena playing the role of Collette and Susan Sarandon playing Eleanor. See more »
Movie is set in 80's. During one scene, jogger is running through park with Pistons #33 Jersey., which was Grant Hill's Jersey. Grant Hill didn't start playing though until 1994. See more »
I first met Eleanor Riese as her lawyer, but soon - because Eleanor was Eleanor - Eleanor became my friend. And soon, because Eleanor was Eleanor, she became my protector, guardian, my worst critic, and my greatest support.

Terrific movie! Congratulations Colette! Eleanor would be amazed and proud. Authentic character development and story line. Helena's performance was stellar. Hillary was good however perhaps not her best role. I highly recommend 55 Steps, very meaningful and worthy message. Say I am not right!
