Independent movie about Nellie Bly

Modern-day news consumers have long forgotten about 19th-century reporter Nellie Bly, despite the fact that she was the most impressive journalist of her time.

Bly’s undercover reporting on the horrific conditions of an insane asylum – for which she was trapped inside for 10 days without help – were some of the most important reporting of her day. At last we get a movie commemorating that.

(years after this movie takes place, Bly once again made history by speeding around the world in faster than 80 days — in a race against another female reporter, Elisabeth Bisland, who was doing the same!)
