Twickenham Cinema Club presents: ‘The Elephant Man’
‘The Elephant Man’ starring John Hurt, Anne Bancroft, Anthony Hopkins and John Gielgud
A Victorian surgeon rescues a heavily disfigured man being mistreated by his “owner” as a side-show freak. Behind his monstrous façade, there is revealed a person of great intelligence and sensitivity. Based on the true story of Joseph Merrick (called John Merrick in the film), a severely deformed man in 19th century London, this film is sensitively directed by David Lynch, with a unique, eerie atmosphere that immerses you in the harsh reality of Victorian London.
Running time: 123 minutes Certificate: PG
