Stonehearst Asylum

Preview by Jack Foley

Featuring a stellar British cast including Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess, David Thewlis, Brendan Gleeson, Jason Flemyng, Academy Award® Winner Sir Ben Kingsley and two‐time Academy Award® Winner Sir Michael Caine and directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist, Transsiberian) Stonehearst Asylum is a gothic psychological thriller based on a short story by Edgar Allen Poe.

When Edward (Sturgess), a young doctor fresh out of college, arrives at Stonehearst Asylum in search of an apprentice position, he is warmly welcomed by the superintendent, Dr Lamb (Kingsley) and his “staff”, including Finn (Thewlis) and a mesmerising woman by the name of Eliza Graves (Beckinsale).

Edward is intrigued by Lamb’s modern methods until a series of unusual events lead him to make a horrifying discovery, exposing Lamb’s utopia and proving that no-one is who or what they appear to be.

Stonehearst Asylum is out on DVD and Blu-ray on June 22, 2015.
