Synopsis

Alan Parker directs Anthony Hopkins in this comedy. Hopkins stars as Dr John Harvey Kellog, inventor of amongst other things cornflakes. Kellog was a militant vegetarian and promoter of clean bowels and ran a health resort in Battle Creek, Michigan, where patients were submitted to up to five enemas a day. This is the story of early American capitalism getting underway in the guise of breakfast cereal.
