This 1987 cult classic starring a young Robin Wright and Cary Elwes and the legendary late, great Andre the Giant has captured and dazzled the imaginations of generations – this is a must for all children to experience, and adults to revisit.
The fairytale adventure follows a beautiful young woman named Buttercup (Wright) and her one true love Westley (Elwes). After a long separation in which Buttercup wrongly believed him dead, Westley hears she has been kidnapped, and sets out to find and save her. But they both must battle the evils of the mythical kingdom of Florin to be reunited with each other. Based on the William Goldman novel of the same name, which earned its own loyal audience, The Princess Bride is one of the all-time greats.

Reviews

A delightfully postmodern fairy tale, The Princess Bride is a deft, intelligent mix of swashbuckling, romance, and comedy that takes an age-old damsel-in-distress story and makes it fresh.

It's an adventure which reaches back to golden-age Hollywood and the devil-may-care world of Douglas Fairbanks or Tyrone Power playing Zorro, or Errol Flynn playing Robin Hood.
