Stonehearst Asylum is a psychological thriller film that takes place in the late 1800s. The movie follows the story of Dr. Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess), a young doctor who arrives at Stonehearst Asylum to begin his residency. His intention is to learn from the most experienced doctors in the field of psychiatry and eventually become one himself.

Upon his arrival, he is greeted by Dr. Lamb (Ben Kingsley), the superintendent of the asylum, who immediately takes an interest in him. Dr. Lamb is a stern and intimidating figure who believes that the only way to treat mental illness is through complete isolation and forced labor. He runs Stonehearst Asylum with an iron fist, and any attempts at questioning his methods are immediately shut down.

Dr. Newgate is introduced to the various patients in the asylum, including Eliza Graves (Kate Beckinsale), a beautiful and mysterious woman who catches his eye. As he begins his residency, he starts to notice strange things happening within the walls of Stonehearst Asylum. Patients are disappearing without a trace, and he becomes increasingly suspicious of Dr. Lamb and his methods.

Dr. Newgate eventually discovers a shocking secret about the asylum: the real doctors and staff have been imprisoned by the patients, who have taken over the asylum and are now posing as the staff. The patients have overthrown Dr. Lamb and are now running the asylum themselves, using the same barbaric methods that they were once subjected to.

Dr. Newgate must decide whether to side with Dr. Lamb and the former staff, or with the patients who have taken over the asylum. He becomes particularly involved with Eliza Graves, who holds the key to the truth behind the asylum's dark past.

As the situation descends into chaos, with patients turning on each other and the former staff trying to regain control, Dr. Newgate finds himself in the middle of a dangerous and unpredictable situation. He must use all his skills and knowledge to navigate the perilous waters of Stonehearst Asylum and uncover the truth behind the strange and terrifying events that have been taking place within its walls.

Stonehearst Asylum is a tense and atmospheric movie that keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat from start to finish. The talented cast, including Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess, and David Thewlis, all give powerful and nuanced performances that add depth and complexity to the already gripping storyline. The film explores themes of power and control, morality and ethics, and the limits of medical science, making for a thought-provoking and enthralling viewing experience.
