Default The Movie of the year is coming next month--little known, remarkable story

The Professor and the Madman

This is the true story of a medical doctor and Civil War surgeon who went insane, went to London, killed a man [out of paranoid delusion] on the streets there. He was judged to be insane and committed to a "lunatic asylum"

Around that time, the scholar James Murray undertakes the ambitious project of the first ed. of the Oxford English Dictionary. It will be huge and the public can mail in proper entries. Murray gets 10,000 entries from an address and travels to meet and thank the man.

It turns out to be the insane asylum and Dr. Minor had sent them all in. Minor ends up doing something...well let's say only an insane man would do such a thing...

Has Sean Penn as Dr. Minor and Mel Gibson as James Murray. I read the excellent book 20 years ago, so I know if made well this will be a great movie. So you have my prediction in the thread title.

The movie has been delayed due to legal matters.

Enjoy.

Do these legal matters revolve around the copyrighting of the word "freal" in the dictionary?

Thanks.
Saw that 2 weeks ago.

it's troubling that I can't find any reviews of the movie even though the release date was March 7. It was put back for a year repeatedly for legal and other reasons. So I wonder if it's really been released.

If you have any links to the movie, please post or PM me. thank you.

Maybe they still have legal problems.

For those of you who read books, that book was excellent.
