The Fisher King is a 1991 American comedy-drama film written by Richard LaGravenese and directed by Terry Gilliam. Starring Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges, with Mercedes Ruehl, Amanda Plummer, and Michael Jeter in supporting roles, the film tells the story of a radio shock jock who tries to find redemption by helping a man whose life he inadvertently shattered. It explores "the intermingling of New York City’s usually strictly separated social strata" and has been described as "a modern day Grail Quest that fused New York romantic comedy with timeless fantasy". The film was released in the United States by TriStar Pictures on September 20, 1991, and grossed $42 million on a $24 million budget.
