The story is actually about the Professor who commenced work on compiling the Oxford English Dictionary. There was also a doctor involved who had contributed more than 10000 words in this dictionary. This doctor was a convict lodged in an asylum for the criminal lunatics. That explains the term ‘Madman’ in the title. Farhad Safinia with others has written the screenplay. Other eminent stars have also played a role in the movie. The shoot started in Dublin in September 2016 and the film is presently in the post-production phase.

He took his cell phone and pointing to it he was trying to show something to Jimmy. It is not clear what was there on the screen of the mobile. Sean’s face only grew redder with time. Both Jimmy and Robin sat down while Sean crouched beside them. Jimmy had covered his mouth in disbelief with his right hand. At the height of the heated conversation, Robin started crying. Both the men turned their attention towards her and the verbal fight stopped for a while. They comforted Robin. The atmosphere seemed a bit settled. The eyewitnesses said that the trio later left amicably; embracing each other before they departed. There was no persistent animosity there.

It is not clear what the matter was that had made Sean Penn so upset and angry.
