A Brunch with Cary Elwes, featuring The Princess Bride
DIRECTED BY ROB REINER
USA, 1987, 98 MIN, RATED PG
When a young boy (Fred Savage, TV’s The Wonder Years) becomes sick and needs to stay home from school, his grandfather (Peter Falk, TV’s Columbo) comes over for a visit to cheer him up by reading a story. This story is a tale of romance and adventure. Princess Buttercup (Robin Wright, Forrest Gump), engaged to the loathsome Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon), is kidnapped and held against her will in order to start a war. It is up to her true love, the dashing Westley (Cary Elwes, Glory), to save her. Along the way Westley encounters many memorable characters played by an all-star cast including Billy Crystal, Mandy Patinkin, Christopher Guest, Wallace Shawn, André the Giant, and Carol Kane. Rob Reiner (When Harry Met Sally…) directs Oscar® winner William Goldman’s (All the President’s Men) classic script that is a now a pop culture staple. One of the most beloved films of our time, THE PRINCESS BRIDE is a thrilling, hilarious, and magical take on the basic fairy tale formula that masterfully works as both a spoof and the real deal. Cary Elwes will be in attendance for a post-film Q&A.
