2017 Movies: Brain on Fire
Chloë Grace Moretz has her brain on fire in the upcoming biographical drama film Brain on Fire, directed by Gerard Barrett.
Based on Susannah Cahalan’s memoir “Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness”, the film tells the story of Susannah Cahalan, a journalist at the New York Post whose life, which was almost perfect, with a successful career and a romantic relationship envied by many, takes a dramatic turn one day, leaving her with serious health issues.
From seizures and hearing voices, she soon finds herself in a much worse condition and the worst part is that doctors have no idea what she has. After numerous misdiagnoses and a hospitalization, a doctor gives her a diagnosis with the hope she can rebuild her life.
Brain on Fire, starring also Tyler Perry, Jenny Slate, Thomas Mann, Carrie-Anne Moss, Richard Armitage, Alex
Zahara, Claudio Encarnacion Montero, and Jenn MacLean-Angus, premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film
Festival and is scheduled to hit theaters on February 22.
