I hate it when geniuses are portrayed as cocky heroes from fairytales who were lucky enough to be born under a bright star. Even truly gifted people have to work hard and sweat blood to meet their potential. It would have been more interesting to focus on his life before his magical talents are discovered. Very simplistic film, even in its portrayal of class differences. Robin Williams' is great in this though.
the idealized view of the working class by a bourgeois gay man who spent his life with the likes of Warhol and other rich players....nothing but some polished cliches. And you don't need this to realize that Robin Williams can be a great actor, he shines through even in the weaker comedies
