Overview

Eliot Rosewater's a well intentioned idealist and philanthropic nut-- and as president of a multi million family foundation dispenses money to arcane and artsy crafty projects. He's also a World War II veteran with a guilt complex, haunted by all this wealth-- and also slightly crazy. His outlandish behavior enrages his senator dad, alienates his society conscious wife-- and the money attracts a young, shyster lawyer who tries to divert it to an obscure branch of the family. It portrays Vonnegut's vision of money, avarice and human behavior-- as it aims a satirical fusillade at plastic America, fast foods, trademarks, slogans, media blitzes and the follies of materialism.
