BRAND NEW 2K MASTER! They freed his mind… she captured his heart! From the classic Daniel Keyes novel Flowers for Algernon comes this moving and unforgettable adaptation by director Ralph Nelson (Lilies of the Field) and screenwriter Stirling Silliphant (In the Heat of the Night). This timeless tearjerker features an Academy Award-winning leading performance by Cliff Robertson (The Devil’s Brigade) and a rousing score by the legendary Ravi Shankar (Gandhi). When a mentally challenged man named Charly (Robertson) undergoes experimental brain surgery, he is miraculously freed from the prison of his own mind. As his IQ soars to genius proportions, Charly's eyes are opened to a world he's never truly seen. But when the effects of his operation inexplicably begin to fade, Charly must find a way to halt his regression... before his own mind destroys his life, his newfound romance and the man he's become. Arthur J. Ornitz (The Boys in the Band) shot this classic drama co-starring Claire Bloom (The Haunting) and Dick Van Patten (Zachariah).


Blu-ray Extras Include:

NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historians Howard S. Berger and Nathaniel Thompson
