Charly

1968

Ralph Nelson
Director

Adaptation of the play Flowers for Algernon, Cliff Robertson plays the child like Charly "cured" by science. Brilliant performances and direction from the tragically underrated Ralph Nelson make for a great film that makes you reach for the hankies without overdoing it. Algernon is a mouse by the by.
