Starring Jack Nicholson, Louise Fletcher, Will Sampson, Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd
The arrival of boisterous spirit R.P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) sends a jolt through an Oregon mental ward, disrupting the routine of pills and Muzak, rousing the patients, and setting off a battle of wills with the tyrannical Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher). Based on Ken Kesey’s novel, Miloš Foreman’s anti-conformist parable won “the big five” at the 48th Academy Awards.
