"The film that has affected me more than anything is 'The Elephant Man' by David Lynch. I have a sister with an intellectual disability, and think it is that sentiment in the film that I could relate to.
"It's quite dark and depressing, but just so beautiful as well. I have watched it many times since my first viewing in 1980."
Guy Pearce stars in "The King's Speech," which just won the Best Picture Oscar, and is now available on DVD and Blu-ray.
