The Professor and the Madman
Professor James Murray (Mel Gibson) took on the challenge of creating the most comprehensive dictionary of all time. As the definitions piled up, the Supervisory Committee, chaired by Professor Murray, determined that a certain Dr. W.C. Minor (Sean Penn) had submitted more than ten thousand words. When the committee insists on honoring him, a shocking truth comes to light: Dr. Minor, a U.S. Civil War veteran, was a convicted murderer in custody at an asylum for insane criminals.
The Professor and the Madman is an extraordinarily true tale of madness, genius and obsession.
