The Elephant Man, DVD DVD



John Hurt stars as John Merrick, aka the elephant man, in this biographical drama directed by David Lynch.

Brutalised in childhood for his deformities, Merrick has been ostracised throughout his life.

When he is discovered by Doctor Frederick Treves (Anthony Hopkins) in Victorian London, Merrick is finally treated with the kindness and intelligence he deserves.

Unfortunately, by awakening his true character the problems continue, for he can never lead a normal life.
