THE DOOR IN THE FLOOR R, 111 mins. The most robust and compelling movie ever spun off from the work of John Irving. As Ted Cole, a famous author-illustrator of children’s books, Jeff Bridges knows how to play a haunted, hard-drinking local literary star so that you see the slightly debauched arrogance of his charm yet like him a lot anyway.
