3. Toys


A number of Robin Williams movies show characters that struggle with ‘normal’ life. These characters are alienated because they just see things differently to the rest of us. One of these such characters is Leslie Zevo, Williams’ role in Toys. Although, I have to say that Joan Cusack who plays Zevo sister is about as far removed from reality she may well as be on Planet Smurf. The simple but dreamy, childlike world of the toymaking Zevos is at risk of being overturned by wicked Uncle Leland (Michael Gambon) who wants to make a toy army.
