"The late comedian Penny Marshall makes an against-type directing job adapting the medical study from Oliver Sacks. In her third film "Awakenings," Dr. Malcolm Sayer (Robin Williams) is hired to care for patients with encephalitis lethargica in a hospital in The Bronx. Sayer tests them with a drug L-DOPA, which causes the patients to awaken from their catatonic trance, and grows a bond with Leonard Lowe (Robert De Niro), who got infected when he was a boy in the 1920’s.
