One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Book vs. Movie

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest   One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (movie)

It has been a while since I have read the book and seen the movie, but I retained some information regarding the differences between the two.  Obviously, this title is a classic and is usually studied in high school.  The characters in the story are definitely memorable, but their portrayal in the movie is just as unforgettable.  From what I remember, the film follows the book quite closely, but does leave some things out.  Since we are recovering from the Golden Globes award ceremony—which happened last night, I figured I would mention a novel that had won for “best movie” in its day.  Jack Nicholson is phenomenal as R.P. McMurphy and it is no wonder that he won the golden globe and an Oscar for it in 1975.  Likewise, Louise Fletcher was convincing as the famous nurse we just love to hate (in both paper and screen play).  In the novel, my favorite characters were Charlie Cheswick and the Native American “chief” Bromden, so I was pleased with the actors who performed these two roles so well.  This title is one that will hit you hard, whether you read it or see it.  Let me know if you agree.
