Plot Summary:

Based on John Kennedy Toole's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about a slovenly 30-something who, living with mother, sets out to find a job in New Orlean's French Quarter. Thinking himself a highly-educated genius, Reilly's quixotic nature serves as a sharp contrast to the various souls he encounters. The acclaimed novel was published in 1980, more than a decade after the death of the author. Suffering from depression, Toole committed suicide in 1969 but, thanks to the determined work of his mother, his manuscript found its way into the hands of author Walker Percy, who was instrumental in bringing Toole's book to print.
