“A film to return to time and again. If you are ever asked if you want to watch The Princess Bride, there can be but one answer: ‘As you wish.’” – Jonathan Haynes, Guardian
Scaling the Cliffs of Insanity, battling Rodents of Unusual Size, facing torture in the Pit of Despair. This is not just your basic, average, every day, ordinary, run-of-the-mill fairy tale! Few, if any, films of the ‘80s have been more beloved by successive generations of moviegoers than director Rob Reiner’s inconceivably enchanting comedy/fantasy/romance of a perpetually kidnapped and rescued princess, penned by legendary screenwriter William Goldman, based on his own novel. And what a story: a lowly stable boy, Westley (Cary Elwes), pledges his love to the beautiful Buttercup (Robin Wright), only to be abducted and reportedly killed by pirates while Buttercup is betrothed to the evil Prince Humperdinck. Even as Buttercup herself is kidnapped by a giant, a scheming criminal mastermind, and a master Spanish swordsman, a mysterious masked pirate (could it be Westley?) follows in hot pursuit. Will true love conquer all? One guess! Featuring an all-star comedy cast, including Christopher Guest, Billy Crystal, Andre the Giant, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Peter Cook, Wallace Shawn, Carol Kane, Fred Savage and Peter Falk. (Dir. by Rob Reiner, 1987, USA, 98 min., Rated PG)
