When Randle Patrick McMurphy gets transferred for evaluation from a prison farm to a mental institution, he assumes it will be a less restrictive environment. But the authoritarian Nurse Ratched runs the psychiatric ward with an iron fist, keeping her patients cowed through abuse, medication and sessions of electroconvulsive therapy. The battle of wills between the rebellious McMurphy and the inflexible Ratched soon affects all the ward’s patients.
The movie won a fistful of Oscars in 1976, including Best Film, Best Director (Miloš Forman), Best Actor (Jack Nicholson), Best Actress (Louise Fletcher), Best Supporting Actor (Brad Dourif).
