Movie Info

Mel Gibson made his feature film directing debut with this drama, loosely based on the book by Isabel Holland, which combines elements from The Elephant Man, Mask, Scent of a Woman, and The Karate Kid in a study of the capacity for human trust and compassion. Gibson plays Justin McLeod, a former teacher who, after having his face and his body terribly disfigured in an automobile accident, has taken to living alone in a big house in an island off the coast of Maine. McLeod works as a free-lance

Mel Gibson does himself proud with the imperfect but noble, and ultimately satisfying Man Without a Face.

Audience Reviews for The Man Without a Face

Two outsiders of society, one a boy thought stupid and the other a burn victim with a criminal record, encourage each other and find reasons to persevere in a misunderstanding world. A quiet and emotional piece that subverts Gibson's characterisation as merely an action hero.
