HOOK
1991, Sony Repertory, 144 min, USA, Dir: Steven Spielberg

Robin Williams stars as grown-up Peter Pan, now a businessman glued to his cellphone and woefully lacking a sense of magic or imagination, who is forced to face his Neverland past when his children are abducted by Captain Hook (a nefarious Dustin Hoffman). Steven Spielberg’s popcorn sequel of sorts to the J.M. Barrie classic is a rip-roaring good time, heightened by immersive set design and a colorful cast of prestige supporting players, including Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell, Bob Hoskins as Smee and Maggie Smith as Granny Wendy.
