About The Fisher King

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.
