Member Picks: The Fisher King
Jeff Bridges and Robin Williams star in Terry Gilliam’s much-loved comedy-drama.
Dir Terry Gilliam
With Jeff Bridges, Robin Williams, Mercedes Ruehl, Amanda Plummer
Jack Lucas is a depressed, suicidal ex-DJ who’s saved by Parry, a homeless man who hallucinates about the Red Knight and claims to be on a quest for the Holy Grail in New York City. Trying to right a past wrong, Jack joins Parry’s quest and attempts to help him piece his life back together. With comedy, drama and Gilliam-esque fantasy, The Fisher King is ripe for re-discovery.
‘It’s a surreal and touching film about love, grief and redemption’
Thomas Harrington, BFI Member
