Brutalised in childhood for his appalling deformities, 'Elephant Man' John Merrick (John Hurt) has been treated as a human freak ever since.
When he is discovered by London doctor Frederick Treves (Anthony Hopkins), Merrick is finally treated with the kindness and intelligence he deserves.
Unfortunately, by awakening his true character the problems continue, for he can never lead a 'normal' life.
David Lynch's atmospheric, fact-based film was nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Director and Best Actor.
