Inspired by real life events, set in late 19th century Baltimore, “The Institute” tells the story of Isabel Porter (Allie Gallerani) who, stricken with grief from her parents’ untimely death, voluntarily checks herself into the Rosewood Institute. It is reputed to be an ideal place for wealthy young women to recuperate and receive treatment for minor maladies, but Isabel soon learns that the asylum’s ‘cutting edge science’ is not what it seems. As she falls under the sway of the Institute’s head doctor, Dr. Cairnes (James Franco), she is subjected to increasingly bizarre and violent experiments in personality-modification, brain-washing and mind control. Join Pamela Romanowsky, Allie Gallerani and Lori Singer as they discuss the film.
