Moving story of real-life Victorian freak John Merrick, brilliantly played by Hurt under a grotesque make-up job, and his appalling mistreatment by society before he finally received the medical attention he deserved. Fascinating period detail and rich monochrome cinematography make this a real treat from a slightly unexpected filmmaker.
