A fairy tale grounded in poignant reality, the magnificent, Manhattan-set The Fisher King, by Terry Gilliam (Brazil), features Jeff Bridges (The Big Lebowski) and Robin Williams (Good Will Hunting) in two of their most brilliant roles. Bridges plays a former radio shock jock reconstructing his life after a scandal, and Williams is a homeless man on a quest for the Holy Grail-which he believes to be hidden somewhere on the Upper West Side. Unknowingly linked by their pasts, the two men aid each other on a fanciful journey to redemption. This singular American odyssey features a witty script by Richard La Gravenese (The Bridges of Madison County), evocative cinematography by Roger Pratt (12 Monkeys), and superb supporting performances by Amanda Plummer (12 Monkeys) and an Oscar-winning Mercedes Ruehl (Married to the Mob), all harnessed by Gilliam into a humane, funny modern-day myth.
