Based on the real life mystery surrounding the death of Julia Law, a young paralegal whose body was found in the apartment of her boss and lover, a prominent Philadelphia lawyer. Was it murder or something more complicated?
This movie is based on Nellie Bly's book, "Ten Days in A Mad-House," which was published in 1887. The book details her experiences while living undercover at Bellevue Hospital, a women's insane asylum on Blackwell's Island, New York, for ten days. The assignment to fake insanity and study a mental institution from within had been given to her by Joseph Pulitzer. She documented that the living conditions and treatment of the mental patients were dreadful. Bly wrote: "The insane asylum on Blackwell's Island is a human rat-trap. It is easy to get in, but once there, it is impossible to get out." See more »
I spend many Saturday nights watching Lifetime movies. They're usually okay. They're usually about some bad husband or bad boyfriend. They usually have an attractive cast. They're also not shy about cleavage. That usually gets me through most of their movies. There's none of that in this one (bummer). "Escaping the Madhouse: The Nellie Bly Story" is made watchable by the always dreamy Christina Ricci. Unfortunately, this movie is pretty forgettable.
