The Elephant Man

Based on a true story, ninetenth century London’s John Merrick, a horribly deformed young man, victim of rare skin and bone diseases, is befriended by a celebrated young physician, Frederick Treves. Rescued from a freak attraction in traveling side shows and introduced to London society, Merrick slowly evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati only to be denied his ultimate dream: to become a man like any other.
