People Vs. Larry Flynt, The
Two-time Oscar winner Milos Forman (1985-Best Director, Amadeus; 1976-Best Director One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) directs Woody Harrelson, Courtney Love and Edward Norton in this "smart, funny, shamelessly entertaining" film called "a blazing triumph" by The New York Times.
Based on the true story of the notorious Hustler publisher who was sued by the Religious Right and paralyzed by a fanatic's bullet, The People Vs. Larry Flynt is a stranger-than-fiction comedy about one man's outrageous public persona and eccentric private life. Chronicling Flynt's raunchy business savvy, his wildly controversial marriage and his infamous courtroom antics, The People Vs. Larry Flynt is "the most scintillating and outrageous message movie of the decade. An ultrapop masterpiece!" -Playboy Magazine
