Based on the real life of Joseph Merrick, The Elephant Man tells the story of a 19th-century British man (Bradley Cooper) whose severe disfigurement made him a star of the traveling freak show circuit. When the renowned Dr. Treves (Nivola) takes Merrick under his care at the London Hospital, he discovers that beneath this shocking exterior lies a brilliant mind and an unshakable faith. Soon all of Victorian high society becomes fascinated by Merrick, especially the beautiful actress Mrs. Kendal (Clarkson). But with his new life comes new complexity... and as Merrick's condition grows more severe, a "normal" life begins to seem all but impossible.
