A superb tragi-comedy based on the book by John Irving. Garp, the product of an extraordinary sexual liason between his liberated mother and a dying comatose soldier, is a family man who sees himself as a "serious" writer, but his mother writes a feminist manifesto, at an opportune time, and finds herself as a magnet for all manner of distressed women. A truly bizarre comedy that always carries the threat of tragedy in the background, when do you stop laughing and start to recoil in horror?
