THE PRINCESS BRIDE

Part 1 of the Flashback Film Fest!

Based on William Goldman's novel of the same name, THE PRINCESS BRIDE is staged as a book read by grandfather (Peter Falk) to his ill grandson (Fred Savage). Falk's character assures a romance-weary Savage that the book has much more to deliver than a simpering love story, including but not limited to fencing, fighting, torture, death, true love, giants, and pirates.

Indeed, THE PRINCESS BRIDE offers a tongue-in-cheek fairy tale depicting stable boy-turned-pirate Westley's journey to rescue Buttercup (Robin Wright), his true love, away from the evil prince (Chris Sarandon), whom she had agreed to marry five years after learning of what she had believed to be news of Westley's death. With help from Prince Humperdinck's disgruntled former employee Miracle Max (Billy Crystal), swordsman Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin), and a very large man named Fezzik (Andre the Giant), the star-crossed lovers are reunited.

...it's ultimately not difficult to see why The Princess Bride has become something of a classic in the years since its 1987 release. - Reel Film Reviews

A unqualified success that blends New York wit with timeless storytelling; a risky piece of filmaking that never feels so. - Empire Magazine

Heroic fantasies, we often feel, should be lighter than air, hot as dragon fire, fast as a sword in sunlight. And that's mostly what we get from the delightful The Princess Bride -- along with some bracing humor and foolery. - Los Angeles Times

Patinkin, the most dazzling movie swordsman since Errol Flynn, steals the movie with his athletic grace and delivery of lines like: "My name is Inigo Montoya! Prepare to die!" - Philadephia Inquirer
