AWAKENINGS
1990, Sony Repertory, 121 min, USA, Dir: Penny Marshall

Based on a memoir by neurologist Oliver Sacks, this life-affirming drama stars Robin Williams as a doctor working with catatonic patients at a Bronx hospital. Using “miracle drug” L-Dopa, he brings one of them (Robert De Niro) back to consciousness, but as the man struggles to reenter life after decades of dormancy, the limitations of the new treatment become clear. Featuring music by Randy Newman.


CAPE FEAR (1991)
1991, Universal, 128 min, USA, Dir: Martin Scorsese

Robert De Niro is the stuff of nightmares as Max Cady, a recently released rapist who targets the public defender (Nick Nolte) he blames for his conviction. This intense (and violent) thriller is a remake of a 1962 film starring Robert Mitchum and Gregory Peck, both of whom appear in smaller roles here. Costarring Jessica Lange and Juliette Lewis.
