About Bob Roberts

Dir: Tim Robbins 15, US, Drama / Satire, 99mins

Great character actor Tim Robbins made his directorial debut in 1992 with this mocking take on the rise of a populist presidential candidate, off the back of his much heralded business acumen. If that sounds all too familiar then you are already on the right page.

Robbins takes the titular lead role as the rabble rousing folk musician turned business magnate most concerned with highlighting how “The ‘times they are a changing ’ back ”. Features an extraordinary supporting cast, including Giancarlo Espositio, Gore Vidal, John Cusack, Alan Rickman, Helen Hunt and a young Jack Black.

PLUS GSFF Short: Just Agree Then (Dir: Duncan Cowles & Ross Hogg 2018, 9mins)
