The Princess Bride (1987), dir. Rob Reiner
“Is this a kissing book?” Opines a young boy as his grandfather prepares to read The Princess Bride to him.
Well maybe, but Rob Reiner’s blissfully enjoyable film has also got fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes and yes, true love!
Buttercup and farmhand Westley are surely destined to be together, but temporary deaths, dread-pirates, conniving princes and kidnappers conspire to get in the way of their love.
