Jeff Bridges stars as Jack Lucas, a former radio shock-jock who sinks into a boozy depression when his flip comment on the air is blamed for a shooting spree in an upscale cafe. Living off the kindness of long-suffering girlfriend Anne (Mercedes Ruehl), Jack has an epiphany when he is rescued from street punks by Parry (Robin Williams), a homeless former professor who has created a world of his own invention to insulate himself from the pain of witnessing his wife's death, in the cafe shooting spree. Unable to repay him in any other way, Jack enlists Anne's help in concocting a scheme to connect Parry to his "beloved," a stranger who he observes from afar every day (Amanda Plummer). Directed by Terry Gilliam (Brazil), this 1991 release garnered five Academy Award® nominations including a win for Mercedes Ruehl for Best Supporting Actress.
