Movie Summary

Director:
Barry Levinson
Released:
1992
Rating:
PG-13

Toys is a contemporary fantasy tale by Barry Levinson about the loss of innocence in the face of maturity. Kenneth Zevo (Donald O' Connor) is a beloved toymaker who with his dying wish bequeaths his fantastical toy factory to his three-star general son Leland (Michael Gambon) rather than his more innocent, eccentric and immature son Leslie (Robin Williams). Kenneth believes doing so will force Leslie and his sister Alsatia (Joan Cusack) to mature and accept the responsibilities of adulthood. However, following the toymaker's death, Leland and his own son Patrick (LL Cool J) quickly convert the idyllic toy factory into a fascistic war machine, much to the shock and horror of Leslie and Alsatia. Leslie must quickly assume his long shirked responsibilities to combat Leland's quickly growing army of war toys and weapons. Featuring a unique and stunning design aesthetic and amazing production values, Toys is a visual feast while serving as a cautionary parable against the price of war and malevolence.
