One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest


A criminal pleads insanity after getting into trouble again and once in the mental institution rebels against the oppressive nurse and rallies up the scared patients.

The critical consensus

The rereleased adaptation of Ken Kesey’s novel features a mesmerising central performance – and a villain who now seems much more likable.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 13/04/2017

A dark vision of the American psychiatric system which incorporates a tragic seam of comedy.

*****Sophie Wyatt, Little White Lies, 13/04/2017

A heartbreaking salute to an unquenchable human spirit.

*****Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 14/04/2017

Jack Nicholson is the driving force, but this rerelease reminds us how delicately he is supported by the rest of the cast.

*****Wendy Ide, The Observer, 16/04/2017
