The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

Opens Friday, May 23, 2014 Synopsis: Robin Williams, Mila Kunis, Melissa Leo, Peter Dinklage, and Hamish Linklater headline this dark comedy directed by Phil Alden Robinson, and centering on a man who races through the streets of Brooklyn on a mission to make amends for his checkered past after being informed that he only has 90 minutes to live. In all of his years, Henry Altmann (Williams) has never had a good day. An embittered malcontent with a perpetual chip on his shoulder, Altmann's impatience is put to the test one morning in his doctor's waiting room. Little does Altmann realize that Dr. Gill (Kunis) is having a particularly rough morning as well. Particularly enraged after being informed that he has a brain aneurism, Altmann demands to know how long he has left to live. When the frustrated doctor vindictively gives Altmann a life-expectancy of 90 minutes, a sudden sense of regret washes over him, propelling him on a mission to seek forgiveness with the people he has hurt the most in life. Meanwhile, Dr. Gill, regretful of her callous and reckless diagnosis, races to track Altmann down, and get him on the operating table. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Robin Williams, Mila Kunis Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
