"Gracefully Insane," the movie

Boston Globe columnist Alex Beam's Gracefully Insane: The Rise and Fall of America's Premier Mental Hospital is "[a]n entertaining and poignant social history of McLean Hospital -- temporary home to many of the troubled geniuses of our age -- and of the evolution of the treatment of mental illness from the early 19th century to today."

Could this work of non-fiction ever find its way to Hollywood?

You bet.
