TERRY GILLIAM’S TENDERHEARTED TALE OF LOVE AND MADNESS, WITH ROBIN WILLIAMS AND JEFF BRIDGES 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.

A Streetcar Named Desire is the 1951 Elia Kazan/Tennessee Williams triumph that earned 12 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture , while also courting controversy with some last-minute edits undertaken to appease the censorship board. Marlon Brando made his first indelible mark on audiences in this powerful adaptation of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Gone With the Wind's Vivien Leigh is the neurotic belle Blanche du Bois who struggles to hold on to her fading Southern gentility against the brutish badgering of her brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski (Brando). Leigh, Kim Hunter, Karl Malden and the rich black-and-white cinematography were all awarded Oscars for this cinematic classic. While Brando was the only one of the film's four Oscar-nominated actors not to secure a win, his passionate cries of Stella! Stella! Stella! remain etched forever in Hollywood history.
