The Elephant Man

Body

David Lynch's moving retelling of a true story features an Academy Award©-nominated performance by John Hurt as John Merrick, the victim of a disease that has left him so horrendously deformed he's spent most of his life as a carnival-show 'freak'. In time, Merrick comes under the care of Dr Treves (Anthony Hopkins), who installs the 'Elephant Man' in a hospital, where he studies him, helps him to overcome a seemingly insurmountable speech impediment, and – for a time – gives him back some human dignity. Through the striking cinematography of Freddie Francis, the film superbly invokes the bleak mood of an industrial Victorian England.

Screenings of the film's new digital restoration marks 40 years since its release.
