Synopsis

Based on a true story, The Elephant Man tells the unforgettable tale of John Merrick. Taking place in the Victorian era, the film shows how a man born with a severe physical deformity is cruelly mistreated as a circus act - before being rescued and brought to London by the Queen's own doctor Frederick Treves. There at last, he finds kindness and hope - but the threat of a return to his old life is never far away.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
