This is the stunning true story of journalist Nellie Bly's now-legendary undercover stint in a mental hospital in 1887. This dramatic biopic follows 23-year-old Bly, a fledgling and preternaturally talented news writer looking to expose rampant abuse, corruption, murder and gross mistreatment of patients at the insane asylum known as Blackwell's Island. To gain access to the asylum, however, Bly must first convince the requisite authorities that she is insane.

Just couldn't get past the acting, camera shots, lighting, and dialog. One of the worst movies about an interesting topic I have ever seen. Actually, that I have NEVER seen,as I couldn't get past the 20 minute mark. Good luck to those who can make it to the end ..... You could end up in a Madhouse.

This movie is good in several ways: It shows something rather unfortunately even more real than what was depicted; It somewhat shows late 1800 New York; It tells of how inequalities had a huge effect on people; it tells of one person's great accomplishments, including spending way too much time in a funny farm where it should have been clear she did not belong. Definitely read the captions at the end of the movie, they are pretty interesting.

As badly acted, filmed, and all things that have to do with production, as a first time highschool grad with a kodak give a show projector. Do some research on this so called film and see that the budget was 12 million?????..for what, the cost for New York to film? the amount paid to Christopher Lambert who sounded like he had lung cancer and couldnt raise his voice? to Kelly Lebrock who was so bad one would never have assumed she had been an actress in her day? Apparently it made 2,045 dollars in its first week...yes two thousand, and looks like it was pulled and shelved till the great release of so called straight to video fame...I guess someone bought the rights, or HAD to purchase it while purchasing another movie ( thats how studios get some money for the disaster flicks or realllllly bad investments)...
So yes, Nellie was a wonderful lady who broke the barrier, but this film should just be broken, and then left in the asylum that it came from...its THAT BAD !.
Worst, ( and that means worse then "the greasy strangler") movie borrowed of the year so far.
