Plot: An investigative reporter Nellie Bly, who’s on a mission to expose the deplorable conditions and mistreatment of patients at the notorious Women’s Lunatic Asylum, and feigns mental illness in order to be institutionalized to report from the inside. The movie is an account of actual events surrounding Nellie’s stay beginning after she has undergone treatment, leaving her with no recollection of how she came to the asylum or her real identity.

The tragedy of Lifetime’s presentation of Nellie Bly’s story of her time in the insane asylum on Blackwell’s Island is that reality of what happened to her and chronicalled in her book ’10 Days in the Madhouse’ is far more interesting than the fictionalized account presented in the film. What Nellie Bly did was remarkable and lead to significant reforms in the way things were done. Truth is frequently more interesting than fiction.
Very good for Lifetime
Lifetime seems to be stepping up their game. They did a great job with the “Surviving R Kelly” series, and now they’ve released this TV movie. Is this movie perfect? NO. But it’s a Lifetime movie, which are usually horrible and this is miles above their usual stuff.
The topic is fascinating – the horrors of an 1887 women’s mental institution. Which is a terrifying premise given that back then women could be thrown into institutions for almost any reason, and with little to no rights, they were stuck there sometimes forever.
I’m not sure that they way the movie’s story is structured best serves the story as there is a late reveal that might have been interesting to have known in advance and watched in real-time. I won’t spoil that twist here, but I’ll tell you that if you don’t want to know, you should NOT read the movie descriptions in advance. Part of the problem is that I did read the description on my Comcast, so I knew way more than the amnesiac heroine and the late-story twist was no surprise to me. Still, despite that, I found myself entertained and there are plenty of small character twists to surprise you. Great performances from Christina Ricci and Judith Light!
After watching the movie, you can go online and read about the real Nelly Bly, and you’ll discover that this movie veers pretty far off the actual historical events. However, it still makes for an interesting angle that is at least “inspired by” the real story.
