"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," directed by Milos Forman, is a timeless cinematic masterpiece adapted from Ken Kesey's novel of the same name. The film is set in a mental institution and revolves around the life-altering arrival of Randle P. McMurphy (played brilliantly by Jack Nicholson), a charismatic and rebellious individual who disrupts the monotony of the institution and challenges the authoritarian rule of Nurse Ratched (played by Louise Fletcher).
