Rebellious patient/prisoner Randle McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) goes head to head with strict, steely head nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher) in this rousing, subversive classic set inside an Oregon mental institution. It became the first film to sweep the top five Academy Awards (best picture, director, actor, actress, screenplay) since 1934’s It Happened One Night. The great supporting cast includes Scatman Crothers, Danny DeVito, Brad Dourif, Christopher Lloyd, William Redfield, Will Sampson, and Vincent Schiavelli. From the novel by Ken Kesey. DCP. 133 min.
