55 Steps is based on the inspiring true story of the unlikely relationship between an outrageous and wickedly smart psychiatric patient and her workaholic patients’ rights attorney. The patient, Eleanor Riese (Helena Bonham Carter), has been mistreated in the psychiatric unit of a hospital and as a result, her attorney, Colette Hughes (Hilary Swank), takes on the uphill battle of representing Eleanor against the psychiatric establishment. In this heartfelt tale told with humor and emotion, Eleanor makes it her mission to mentor Colette whether Colette likes it or not! The film features an award-winning cast including Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech, Alice in Wonderland, Suffragette, and Harry Potter franchise) and Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby, P.S. I Love You, and Logan Lucky).
