Who Is Harry Kellerman And Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?
This cerebral, quirky comedy explores midlife crisis through a rock-music composer's perspective. Georgie Soloway (Academy Award winner Dustin Hoffman), a neurotic songwriter at the peak of his career, can't seem to love anybody - least of all himself. He becomes increasingly depressed as his delusional paranoia - fueled by a mysterious stranger who has been bad-mouthing him - interferes with all of his relationships. Even his therapist (two-time Oscar nominee Jack Warden) can't seem to help. However, when Georgie meets the eccentric, aspiring actress Allison Densmore (Barbara Harris, in her Oscar-nominated role), he realizes it's his last chance for love. For his role as the prolific songwriter Georgie Soloway, Hoffman performed live (in character) with Shel Silverstein and Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show at the iconic rock palace, Fillmore East, in New York City.
