>AWAKENINGS: GOOD MORNING, THE BRONX

ROBERT DE NIRO IS a man who has been comatose for 30 years. Robin Williams is the doctor who revives him. Penny Marshall directs the adaptation of a real New York City case, which is tasteful except for hokey romantic subplots—Julie Kavner with Williams, Penelope Ann Miller with De Niro. The story is irresistibly moving; Williams, obsessive and edgy, and De Niro, marvelously expressing the joy of simply being aware of the world, are state of the acting art. (RCA/Columbia)
