The Professor and the Madman

2019 film starring Mel Gibson and Sean Penn.
Professor Murray played by Gibson, starts to compile the first edition of the Oxford English dictionary.

Set in the mid 19th century, Murray solicits entries from all over English-speaking countries. He receives more than 10,000 entries from Dr. William Minor, a patient at a criminal insane asylum, played by Sean Penn.

Sean Penn is brilliant as Minor in this compelling and interesting film. Also, Jennifer Ehle is remarkable, as usual. And I always enjoy a movie with Eddie Marsan in a supporting role.

Great acting, interesting story in history.
