Drama • PG-13 • 1990 • 2 hr
Stellar performances by both leads, I cried a lot. I highly recommend Oliver Sacks' book that this is based on too.
based on true story. Robin Williams was an amazing actor ♡
Must watch! Amazing acting. Heartwarming plot
Proves that Robin Williams is not only amazing comedian, but also great in dramatic roles. And that De Niro is just amazing in general.
Heartfelt. So many complex characters, it was amazing to see De Niro in this role. Williams was of course amazing. Depressing yet so joyous.
I have no idea how and why I missed this movie in my life! Saw it for the first time this year. Made methink what a good life I have.
This film is almost as miraculous as the true story it is based upon. An incredible saga. Williams and De Niro are (as always) fantastic.
Seriously one of my favorite films. Why isn’t this film wildly popular???
The performances and narrative is incredible. It’s well rounded as a film but what pushes it into excellence is the Williams-De Niro combo.
An emotional and heartfelt movie. DeNiro playing against type is great and the chemistry between him and Robin Williams is fantastic.
