One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

14 Apr 20172 May 2017

To celebrate the incomparable Jack Nicholson’s 80th birthday this April, we are screening One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, the classic that garnered him his first Oscar. Directed by Miloš Forman and adapted from Ken Kesey’s novel, the rebellious 1975 tragicomedy centres on Randle McMurphy (Nicholson), a convict who simulates mental illness in the hope that a transfer to psychiatric hospital might ensure his early release. But he hasn’t bargained for the rigid regimen of Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher, also superb), who dislikes his disruptive—though he’d say liberating—effect on the ward.

The acclaimed drama went on to win five Oscars and six BAFTAs, and its all-star cast includes Danny DeVito, Brad Dourif and Christopher Lloyd.
