Randal P. McMurphy is a long time criminal who has once again fallen foul of the law. Rather than face another stint in prison, he pleads insanity and is sent to a hospital for the mentally unstable. There McMurphy meets Nurse Ratched, the cold and oppressive figure in charge of his ward. As time passes, McMurphy is increasingly horrified at the abuse and inhumane treatment being inflicted on the other patients, encouraging them to join together and rise up against the nurse and the establishment behind her. This multi-Oscar winner is a true classic of the 1970s, featuring one of the most memorable villains in screen history; a career-defining performance from Jack Nicholson; and a spirit of defiant rebellion that remains inspirational.
The vitality of 70s Hollywood is captured in this offbeat drama about a man who rejects his privileged background for a life as an oil driller.
