This true-story movie stars Anthony Hopkins and John Hurt. John Hurt plays John Merrick, the man every one calls ‘Elephant Man’. He had a extreme deformity, and was in a freak show until a surgeon (Hopkins) found him, and took care of him. This is a true story that took place in the 1800’s. I really recommend seeing this movie. It is extremely sad though. I give it a A+.  Here is a website to find out more about the life of John Merrick www.rarediseases.about.com/cs/proteussyndrome/a/031301.htm
