WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Christian Slater stars in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, adapted from Ken Kesey's novel, by Dale Wasserman. Chief Bromden, half American-Indian, whom the authorities believe is deaf and dumb, tells the story of a mental institution ruled by Big Nurse on behalf of the all-powerful Combine. Into the terrifying grey world comes McMurphy (Slater), a brawling gambling man, who wages total war on behalf of his cowed fellow inmates. What follows is at once hilarious and heroic, tragic and ultimately liberating.
