The Elephant Man

This 1980 Oscar-nominee is David Lynch's straightest film, an artistically assembled, black-and-white drama proving truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. John Hurt stars as the real-life John Merrick, a sensation in Victorian England for his heavily disfigured face and body. Anthony Hopkins is the kindly surgeon who rescues him from the circus freakshow and makes him a respected member of high society. 124 minutes PG.
