When his on-air comments incite a tragedy, narcissistic ex-shock jock Jack (Jeff Bridges) becomes despondent until he meets Parry (Robin Williams), a homeless former university professor who believes it is his mission to find the Holy Grail. Realizing they share a heartbreaking connection, Jack hopes to redeem himself by helping Parry unite with Lydia (Amanda Plummer), the shy woman with whom he is smitten. A poignant blend of timeless fantasy, sweet romantic comedy, and devastating drama, Terry Gilliam’s The Fisher King boasts evocative visuals, a witty script by Richard LaGravenese, and extraordinary, heartfelt performances, including Mercedes Ruehl’s Oscar-winning turn as Jack’s girlfriend Anne. [140 mins; drama, romance, fantasy; English]
