Rabbit Ears Presents

Robin Williams’ menagerie of voices and The Klezmer Conservatory Band’s spirited melodies combine hilariously in this wacky retelling of a famous Russian folktale in which a country fool and his crew of superhuman “moujiks” unite to win the hand of the Tsar’s daughter.

From the VHS box:

“You have the freedom to be yourself, your true self, here and now, and nothing can stand in your way.” Jonathan Livingston Seagull’s words, from the best-selling novel by Richard Bach, bring into sharp focus the intense and extraordinary determination of Jonathan, who envisions another world — one of love, understanding, achievement, hope and individuality. An evocative musical score by Neil Diamond is paramount to the film’s mood.
