The Princess Bride

February 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Princess Bride is a 1987 American fantasy adventure comedy film directed by Rob Reiner and starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, André the Giant, and Christopher Guest. The story centers around Buttercup, a young woman living on a farm in the kingdom of Florin. When she gives orders to farmhand Westley, he replies, “As you wish.” The two fall in love, and Westley leaves to seek his fortune overseas, promising to return someday. When his ship is attacked by the Dread Pirate Roberts, Westley is presumed dead. Five years later, Buttercup is betrothed to Humperdinck, the prince of Florin, though she does not love him. Two weeks before the wedding, Buttercup is kidnapped by three outlaws: a small Sicilian man named Vizzini, a giant named Fezzik, and a Spanish fencing master named Inigo Montoya, who seeks revenge against a six-fingered man for killing his father. The rest of the movie follows their adventures as they try to rescue Buttercup from the clutches of Prince Humperdinck.
