One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest



What's it about?

A petty criminal fakes insanity to serve his sentence in a mental ward rather than prison. He soon finds himself as a leader to the other patients—and an enemy to the cruel, domineering nurse who runs the ward.


Why did we pick it?

Thought-provoking and heartwarming capturing a subject that is rarely shown with such scary realism. The entire cast does a sensational job with Nicholson and Fletcher standing out amongst the rest.


Who's in it? Jack Nicholson - Randle Patrick McMurphy

Louise Fletcher - Nurse Mildred Ratched

Danny DeVito - Martini


Who made it?

Miloš Forman - Director

Ken Kesey - Writer (Novel)

Bo Goldman - Writer (Screenplay)
