A perfect movie for a perfect moment in history, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest rightly earned the Academy’s 1976 top honors, including Best Picture, Best Director, Actor, Actress, and Screenplay. Set in an insane asylum during the 1960s, recent inmate Randie Mc Murphy, played oh-so-well by Jack Nicholson, encourages his more institutionalized inmates to rebel against the rigid rules set down by head Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher). The result is an apt metaphor for that era’s rising tensions between rebellious youth and the establishment’s firm grip on society. Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion. Please arrive by 5:30 for the pre-film festivities. Film will begin at 5:50pm.
