Old Jet Film Club – THE ELEPHANT MAN
D. DAVID LYNCH – 124MINS
Joseph “John” Merrick (John Hurt) is an intelligent and friendly man hated by his Victorian-era English society because he is severely deformed. Dr. Treves (Anthony Hopkins) discovers him in a sideshow and brings him into his home. Underneath Merrick’s rough exterior hides a refined soul and that can teach the British upper class a lesson about dignity.
