Mask (1985) DVD9 Director's Cut
Mask is based on the true story of Rocky Dennis (Eric Stoltz), an exceptionally kind, sensitive teenager who suffers from craniodiaphyseal dysplasia, a condition in which calcium forms on the skull and causes it to grow to an unsightly, abnormal size. Rocky's mother, Rusty, is a classic drug-abusing "biker chick" who hangs out with a bunch of motorcyclists led by Gar (Sam Elliott). When Rocky isn't busy watching after his selfish mother, he attempts to live a normal life. Rocky begins high school to the expected barrage of taunts, but his self-mocking approach to his condition disarms the barbs of any sting. Soon, the students see the person behind the deformities: an incredibly bright and witty individual. One of Rocky's goals in life is to meet a girl who will fall in love with him despite his disfigurement, and he gets the chance when he meets Diana (Laura Dern), a beautiful blind girl. But as the new school year starts his plans start to fall apart - and Diana's parents won't let him see her...
