Chris' Film Club: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Today we can say a very happy birthday to film director Milos Forman, who is famed for his work on this 1975 classic. Produced by Michael Douglas and starring Jack Nicholson, it is the story of a criminal (Nicholson) who thinks he can serve an easier sentence if he pretends to have a mental illness and spend his sentence in a hospital. There he becomes the leader of a group of patients and they go up against the head nurse, Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher).

The film also stars Brad Dourif, Christopher Lloyd and Danny DeVito.
