In a world without hope, his lies gave people the courage to dream. Robin Williams plays a resident of a Jewish ghetto in WWII Poland who relates radio news he overhears to his fellow detainees. When they believe he owns a radio, "Jakob the Liar" begins making up his own morale-boosting reports and passes them along. Moving drama co-stars Alan Arkin, Liev Schreiber, and Armin Mueller-Stahl (who also appeared in the original 1974 German film). Also includes "Moscow on the Hudson." 3 3/4 hrs. total. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English.
