A nice rest in a state mental hospital beats a stretch in the pen, right? Randle P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson), a free-spirited con with lightning in his veins and glib on his tongue, fakes insanity and moves in with what he calls the "nuts" in "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest." Immediately, his contagious sense of disorder runs up against numbing routine. No way should guys pickled on sedatives shuffle around in bathrobes when the World Series is on.
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 on the ward.
Based on the American literary classic by Ken Kesey, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest" is the powerfully dramatic film that took the 1975 Academy Awards® by storm with its compelling tale about the triumph of the human spirit and the fight for freedom.
