Directed and produced by the Emmy Award-winning television director Ralph Nelson, this moving film is based on the the classic Daniel Keyes novel ‘Flowers for Algernon’ . When an intellectually disabled man named Charly is selected by two doctors to undergo a surgical procedure that triples his IQ, 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. Featuring an Academy Award-winning performance by Cliff Robertson as Charly, with a score by Ravi Shankar, the screenplay was written by Stirling Silliphant.
