TMHE – Episode #45: Hook (1991 film)

In this episode Mark talks about one of his favourite films: the 1991 American fantasy swashbuckler adventure film “Hook” directed by Steven Spielberg. The story of the film, which is a sequel to the story from J.M. Barrie’s 1911 novel “Peter and Wendy”, focuses on an adult Peter Pan who has forgotten about his childhood and who is now known as Peter Banning, a successful and unimaginative workaholic lawyer, who is married with two children; however when his old nemesis, Captain James Hook, finds a way to leave Neverland and kidnap his children, Peter, with the help of Tinkerbell, must return to Neverland to save them and remember who he really is. The film stars Robin Williams as Peter Banning/Peter Pan, Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook, Julia Roberts as Tinker Bell, Bob Hoskins as Mr. Smee, and Maggie Smith as Granny Wendy.
