Two-time Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper stars in Bernard Pomerance’s Tony Award-winning classic, The Elephant Man, based on the real life of Joseph Merrick, a 19th century British man who became a star of the traveling freak show circuit. When a renowned doctor, played by Alessandro Nivola, takes Merrick under his care at the London Hospital, he is astonished by Merrick’s brilliant intelligence and unshakable faith.
