In Victorian England, a prominent surgeon gives refuge to a severely deformed man who makes a living as a human curiosity in a circus freak show. A brilliant Must-See film which portrays the most appalling sides of human society and one man’s fight against it.
Excellent black and white cinematography and superb acting from leads Anthony Hopkins as the doctor and John Hurt as The Elephant Man.
David Lynch’s first “mainstream” film retells the touching story based on the real life biography of Joseph Merrick and what was written about him by surgeon Sir Frederick Treves in the 1920 book “The Elephant Man and Other Reminiscences” (1923). Critically acclaimed and heartfelt. Must-Watch!
