Based on a story by Edgar Allen Poe, and by the director of "Session 9", Brad Anderson. "Stonehearst Asylum" is out at selected UK cinemas this weekend and available to stream on Digital HD.
Set in 1899, the film follows medical school graduate Dr. Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess - "Deception") as he arrives at Stonehearst Asylum, an institute for the mentally insane.
There he meets the leader of the organisation, Dr. Silas Lamb (Ben Kingsley - "Shutter Island"), and one of his patients, Eliza Graves (Kate Beckinsale - "Underworld"), who Newgate becomes enamoured with.
Shocked by the unconventional methods Lamb uses to treat his patients, Newgate decides to leave the asylum, determined to take Eliza with him. However, he discovers that everything is not as it seems and escaping turns out to be more difficult than he imagined...
Michael Caine ("Dark Knight", "Harry Brown"), Jayson Flemyng ("Lock Stock", "Snatch") David Thewlis (Kingdom of Heaven) and Brendan Gleeson (Edge of Tomorow) co-star.
