Deserving Hollywood classic on the big screen
A CLASH of misfits and anti-heroes, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a deserving Hollywood classic.
A wry non-conformist classic and the film that won Jack Nicholson his first Oscar as the anti-establishment anti-hero McMurphy, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest remains a powerful cat-and-mouse game of wit and lunacy.
Set in the microcosm of an insane asylum, McMurphy (Nicholson) feigns mental illness to reprieve himself from prison duty.
In captivity, the free-spirited McMurphy challenges the iron hand of asylum authority, the indomitable Nurse Ratched, in a dance of comedy and tragedy.
Tickets to the screening include post show drink and nibbles.
Friday at the Flicks is a series that screens classic, significant and challenging films.
A five-minute pre-screening talk sets context and then post-show drinks and nibbles allow for a post-show discussion with a community of film enthusiasts.
It's on at the USQ Arts Theatre from 6pm on Friday, August 12.
