AFTERNOON FILM: The Princess Bride (PG) Accessible
Tue, 7th November, 2017 @ 14:00pm - 16:00pm£3
Cult Classic fairy tale adventure about a beautiful young woman and her one true love. He must find her after a long separation and save her. They must battle the evils of the mythical kingdom of Florin to be reunited with each other. Based on the William Goldman novel “The Princess Bride” which earned its own loyal audience.
As a grandfather (Peter Faulk) tells a story to his disinterested but captive grandson, we are transported to the adventures of the beautiful Buttercup who is kidnapped by the dastardly Prince Humperdinck, and of Westley, her childhood beau, who has returned in the guise of hero Dread Pirate Roberts, and teams up with the great swordsman Inigo Montoya to go to Buttercup’s rescue. Not to mention Andre the Giant!
“A warm and silly fairy-tale, played with giddy delight by all concerned and directed with a rich vein of humour by Rob Reiner; a satire on fairy-tales and fairy-telling as written with the consummate authority of William Goldman based on the flamboyantly knowing novel by, you got it, William Goldman; and a sly, sly attack on Hollywood’s tendency to ignore the simple beauty of storytelling. The Princess Bride is all these things, a film all about the telling of tales: tall, short, moral — kind of — and whimsical. It is not to be trusted, only adored.” Empire
