The dream casting of Jennifer Jason Leigh as iconic writer Dorothy Parker brought a throng of then-rising stars into this loving yet unsentimental ensemble re-creation of 1920s Manhattan’s Algonquin Round Table, where the booze and the brilliance flowed even when hearts broke. At Parker’s elbow are humorist Robert Benchley (Campbell Scott), Edna Ferber (Lili Taylor), Charles MacArthur (Matthew Broderick), and more.
