The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride
[DVD Princess]

This is the perfect all around movie. I begins with an ill boy who is off school. His grandpa comes round to read him book called "The Princess Bride". The boy is skeptical that a book could be entertaining, but soon starts to enjoy it. This fairy tale movie really has something for everybody; a love story with a princess and a pirate mixed with the sword fighting adventures of a Spaniard seeking the man who killed his father. This movie was made in the 80's so it's special effects can be a bit comical - especially the rodents of unusual size. I'd recommend it to anyone who is after a good movie. It stars Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin and Andre the Giant. This movie is based on Williams Goldman's book The Princess Bride. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the book the movie is based on: The princess bride: S. Morgenstern's classic tale of true love and high adventure, by: William Goldman.] -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library
[Also available in print format.]
