Transcript of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

Thank You!
The movie,
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
, is a psychological drama directed by Miloš Forman. In the movie a man who goes by Randle McMurphy is put into a mental institution. There he meets the evil Nurse Ratched, who rules the ward by using the patients fear against them. McMurphy teaches the patients to long for freedom, and they learn how to join together to over come obstacles. The only insurmountable obstacle is the power of Nurse Ratched. Will McMurphy be able to overthrow the dictatorship of Nurse Ratched, or will she force him to bend to her will?

Author's Purpose
The story of how Miloš Forman became director of the movie is a long one, but all in all, Forman read the novel,
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
, and he found it so interesting that he wanted to make a movie adaptation of it. This would make Forman's purpose very similar to the purpose of the author of the novel, Ken Kesey. Ken Kesey stated in an interview that when he was put in a mental institution he was inspired to write the novel. He experienced first hand the horrible treatment of patients in mental institutions. Even to this day, electroshock therapy is used to keep patients in line. Ken Kesey and Miloš Forman both wanted to bring this abuse to attention.
