Robin Williams proved his brilliance extended beyond improvisation with his leading dramatic role in this adaptation of the beloved John Irving classic , The World According to Garp (1982). Williams plays T.S. Garp, novelist son of strident feminist Jenny Fields (Glenn Close), who must wrestle his way through a life full of gender politics, parenthood, adultery, tragedy and recovery as he searches for his place. John Lithgow’s performance as Roberta Muldoon, a transgender NFL Pro, cemented his place as one of the character greats.
Oh 1982 I was born. :)
