A couple of days before 1899 Christmas, the Oxford new graduate Dr. Edward Newgate arrives at the Stonehearst Asylum to complete training for his specialty of asylum medicine. He is met by armed men who take him to Dr. Silas Lamb, who welcomes his help and takes him under his wing. Edward is shocked to see the methods that Dr. Lamb uses to run this asylum. He becomes infatuated with Eliza Graves, one of the patients who is a lady of status and does not seem to belong. One night, Edward overhears a knocking from the bowels of the facility and is shocked to find that everything is not as it seems in this place and that his uneasy feelings may be justified. What will Edward Choose?Written by

When Dr. Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess) is dining the first night in the asylum, he points out the irony of the groundskeepers name, Mickey Finn (David Thewlis) and the reference to slipping someone a Mickey, a drug in their drink. The term "slip someone a Mickey" was most likely coined after a real man named Mickey Finn from Chicago, Illinois, who, in 1903 was arrested when it surfaced that he would drug and rob patrons of his inn.

Eerily entertaining & engrossing! One to see twice!
Surprisingly smart movie. My eyes were glued to the screen. I wanted to watch it again right after I saw it. It has a bit of a "Shutter Island" feel to it, however the only things similar are Ben Kingsley, a Mental institution, suspense, spoilers, a script and story that keeps you pleasantly confused, and solid acting. I was unsure whether or not I wanted to watch this movie because of middle-of-the-road reviews. I'm a serious film freak, and maybe I disagree with critics on movies with style and substance that are THIS original. I gave movies like "Cloud Atlas," "Snowpiercer," "Inception," 9 of 10 ☆s. If you love unique films with plot twists, you'll like "Stonehearst Asylum!"
