The World According to Garp
Born the bastard son of an unconventional mother (Glenn Close), oddball writer T.S. Garp (Robin Williams) inhabits a strange universe filled with well-intentioned head cases, a feminist icon, a transsexual football player (brilliantly played by John Lithgow), fanatics and lovers. George Roy Hill (Slaughterhouse Five) directs this spirited adaptation of John Irving's best-selling novel, which proves both heartwarming and tragic.
