55 STEPS is based on the inspiring true story of the unlikely relationship between an outrageous and wickedly smart Eleanor Riese (Helena Bonham Carter), a patient in a psychiatric hospital where she’s been mistreated, and her attorney, a workaholic patients’ rights lawyer, Colette Hughes (Hilary Swank). In this heartfelt tale told with humor and emotion, Colette takes on the uphill battle of representing Eleanor against the psychiatric establishment while the spirited 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).
