    Brutalised in childhood for his appalling deformities, `Elephant Man` John Merrick (John Hurt) is a human freak until he is discovered by a London doctor (Anthony Hopkins), who treats him 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.
