To celebrate Jack Nicholson's 80th birthday, the BFI is bringing one of his most cherished works back to the big screen.
The second of only three films to win the ‘big five’ Oscars (Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Directing and Writing), One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a landmark American classic which holds blistering contemporary relevance.
From Friday 14 April at BFI SOUTHBANK and other UK-wide Cinemas
★★★★★ "The role Jack Nicholson was born to play... simply electrifying" Empire
To mark this re-release, we’ve put together a fantastic goody bag to be won.
- A pair of tickets to see One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest screening at the BFI Southbank from 14 April. The comic energy and tragic weight of Jack Nicholson’s unforgettable performance make this a cinema classic – one that is widely considered one of the greatest movies ever made.
- A copy of the artwork specially commissioned for this BFI re-release.
- A copy of the novel that inspired the film courtesy of our friends at Penguin Classics. Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Here is the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially the tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her. We see the struggle through the eyes of Chief Bromden, the seemingly mute Native American patient who witnesses and understands McMurphy’s heroic attempt to do battle with the powers that keep them all imprisoned.
- Medication Time at BFI Bar & Kitchen: To tie in with the re-release of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, you can enjoy either a Ratched or Randle McMurphy — one of the assorted Cuckoo-themed cocktails on offer at BFI Bar & Kitchen this April.*
Only valid for those who are 18 and over. Offer includes two complimentary Cuckoo cocktails normally priced at £9.
