'Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die'.
A tongue-in cheek fairy tale for all ages, this year the Princess Bride celebrates its 25th birthday, so we're having a birthday screening complete with crowns, cake and swords.
Director Rob Reiner breathes vividly-colored cinematic life into William Goldman's The Princess Bride, effectively evoking the wondrous, wide-eyed spirit of the witty 1973 novel.
When a sick boy (Fred Savage) receives a visit from his doting grandfather (Peter Falk) who intends to read to him from his favorite book, he's not exactly pleased to be extracted from his world of video games.
However, his mood quickly changes as he, along with the viewer, is transported to a place out of time — to Florin, a kingdom in the ultimate imaginary land, complete with dashing heroes, cowardly princes, rhyming giants, shrieking eels, rodents of unusual size, fancy swordfights, pirates and yes... even some kissing.
