This 40-year-old, multi awared-winning film is now newly restored in digital 4K, overseen by director David Lynch. A Victorian surgeon rescues a heavily disfigured man who is mistreated while scraping a living as a side-show freak. Behind his monstrous facade, there is revealed a person of kindness, intelligence and sophistication.
