Escaping the Madhouse: The Nellie Bly Story (2019 TV Movie)
User ReviewsReview this title
The only reason this isn't one star is that some of performers did a decent job in their roles. Pretty sure the writers and director never read Bly's book or any other bio that did any research at all on the subject. Maybe got their info from Wikipedia and made up the rest to turn this into an almost entirely fictional story.
Judith Light is memorable as the evil woman in charge. Josh Bowman plays a good doctor trying to better their conditions. He looks right in 19th C garb. The main character is played by Christina Ricci and her strange face is suitable for the eerie setting.
If things seem to be getting monotonous there is an unforeseeable twist and the ending is interesting.
