Movie Info

Matthew Modine stars in this adaptation of the classic novel by Daniel Keyes. In the film, Modine plays Charlie Gordon, a gentle, simple man with an IQ of 68 who is the subject of an intelligence-enhancing experiment. This lowly janitor, who was the butt of many of his co-workers' jokes, is soon alienating his friends by quoting Shakespeare and reading Aramaic. Unfortunately, his heightened intelligence proves to be temporary and he soon slides back into being unintelligent.
