sy parrish (robin williams) is a mild-mannered photo lab technician who has worked his entire adult life at a discount store’s one-hour photo shop. a lonely man, sy derives his self-esteem from his craft developing photos in the lab and lives his life through those same photographs. his fascination with the yorkin family, whose pictures he has developed for years, turns into an obsession when sy invents a familial connection and starts meddling with their personal life.
If you think Robin Williams makes a good funny man, then be prepared to be blown out of your seat by his “legit” acting. I’m really looking forward to seeing him in a darker movie.
