The World According to Garp

1982 / 136min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: GEORGE ROY HILL

CAST: ROBIN WILLIAMS, MARY BETH HURT, GLENN CLOSE

The easy empathy of the much-missed Robin Williams is a perfect fit for the figure of author John Irving’s writer-protagonist T.S. Garp, living in the shadow of mother Jenny Fields (Glenn Close), surviving childhood and starting a family, met by tragedy at every turn in this wild, heartbreaking film, with indelible supporting performances from John Lithgow and Mary Beth Hurt and champion DP Miroslav Ondricek behind the lens.
