The Elephant Man

The unique story behind a freak show's leading man

The two-time Academy Award nominee will step into the shoes of Joseph Merrick in this performance based on a true story. A genuine, loving yet severely deformed Merrick becomes the star of a 19th-century traveling freak show. A friendship soon blossoms between Doctor Treves (Alessandro Nivola) and the beautiful actress Mrs. Kendal (Patricia Clarkson). The doctor and starlet struggle to shield Merrick from the world's malice. Here's a story where love, above all else, strives to prevail.
