It's always being said that some of the best geniuses suffer from their own broken realities, and this films seems to be another exploration of that. Co-starring Catherine Keener, David Strathairn and Alan Cumming, the film also follow in the footsteps of truncated success stories found in recent films such as Inside Llewyn Davis and Frances Ha.

MALADIES will open in select theaters beginning March 21st, and will be available nationwide on VOD and iTunes on March 25th.
