A fairy tale grounded in poignant reality, the magnificent Manhattan set The Fisher King features Jeff Bridges and Robin Williams in two of their most brilliant roles. 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 in a fanciful journey to discovering their own humanity.
