Emotionally-Charged Film Scenes, Take Two

David Lynch’s The Elephant Man is a beautiful film. It captures with grace, compassion and pathos the tortured life of Joseph (John) Merrick. There are a number of scenes throughout the film that are deeply moving, but the one below is my favorite. It’s not so much the things that John Merrick says, but the reaction of Dr. Treves’ wife. Just watch.
