Presented by the Criterion Collection


Introduced by Terry Gilliam


Terry Gilliam’s tenderhearted tale of love and madness, starring Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges, is a fairy tale grounded in poignant reality. The Criterion Collection are celebrating their Blu-ray release of this compassionate, funny, modern-day myth with a special cinema screening.


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 East Side. Unknowingly linked by their pasts, the two men aid each other on a fanciful journey to discovering their own humanity.
