Robin Williams is Garp. He's got a funny way of looking at life.
Based on the John Irving novel, this film chronicles the life of T S Garp, and his mother, Jenny. Whilst Garp sees himself as a "serious" writer, Jenny writes a feminist manifesto at an opportune time, and finds herself as a magnet for all manner of distressed women.

A fast journey through ones life, small to big.. really makes you think how quick life really passes by.. followed with all emotions, mostly laughter.. had me hooked from the start, Robin's films always do, because he's an amazing actor... and sure shows you up in this film. Now just lives on in his films, and memories....

As with us all, our lives incorporate sadness, happiness, joy and tragedy. This film encapsulates the life of Garp and we are taken on an emotional journey which may resonate with us all in theme and scope. Simply wonderful, funny and sad.
