Summary

Cool Hand Luke

His crime: nonconformity. His sentence: the chain gang. Paul Newman plays one of his best-loved roles as Cool Hand Luke, the loner who won’t – or can’t – bend to the arbitrary rules of his captivity. 

A cast of fine character actors, including George Kennedy in his Oscar® - winning role of dragline and the indelible Jo Van Fleet as Luke’s mother, give Newman solid support. And Strother Martin is the Captain who taunts Luke with the now-legendary line, “What we’ve got here is.. failure to communicate.” No failure here. With rich humour and vibrant storytelling power, Cool Hand Luke succeeds resoundingly.
