The Princess Bride

In Tribute to William Goldman


Wednesday, December 5 & Thursday, December 6

(1987) dir Rob Reiner w/Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant, Wallace Shawn, Chris Sarandon, Christopher Guest, Fred Savage, Peter Falk [98 min; 35mm]
It seems useless to describe the plot of THE PRINCESS BRIDE since so many of us seem to know the film by heart. Suffice to say that William Goldman’s hilarious and exciting revisionist fairy tale features, in the words of Peter Falk’s character, “Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles…” and, yes, I’m afraid there is some kissing.
