One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (R)

If he's crazy, what does that make you?

ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST is Certified FRESH with a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes, the Critics Consensus: "The onscreen battle between Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher serves as a personal microcosm of the culture wars of the 1970s -- and testament to the director's vision that the film retains its power more than three decades later."

The 5:00pm show will be introduced and followed by a Q&A discussion with Film Professor Joe Horine.

Synopsis: When Randle Patrick McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) gets transferred for evaluation from a prison farm to a mental institution, he assumes it will be a less restrictive environment. But the martinet Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher) 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.
