One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (1975) (C)
Release Date: August 22, 1997.
"A powerful, smashingly effective movie."
Pauline Kael, The New Yorker.
Free-spirited con Randle P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) fakes insanity and moves into the state mental hospital with what he calls the "nuts." Immediately, his contagious sense of disorder runs up against numbing routine. This means war! On one side is McMurphy. On the other is soft-spoken Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher), among the most coldly monstrous villains in film history. At stake is the fate of every patient in the ward. From Ken Kesey's acclaimed bestseller, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest won five 1975 Academy Awards: Best Picture, Actor (Nicholson), Actress (Fletcher), Director (Milos Forman) and Adapted Screenplay (Lawrence Hauben and Bo Goldman). Raucous, searing and with a superb cast that includes Brad Dourif, Danny DeVito and Christopher Lloyd in his film debut, this one soars. -- (C) Warner Bros, 1975, USA.
