About the Event
Williamstown Public Library 150th Anniversary Film Series
Location: Clark Art Institute Auditorium
The Princess Bride (Rob Reiner, 1987, 98 minutes)
Written by an Oscar-winning screenwriter who never gave up his day job as the author of novels, Princess Bride pits true love against inconceivable odds. And don't forget the irreverent gags, eccentric ensemble, and dazzling swordplay. A kid (Fred Savage), home sick from school, grudgingly allows his grandfather (Peter Falk) to read him a dusty storybook—which is how we meet the innocent Buttercup (Robin Wright, in her breakout role), about to marry the nefarious Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon) through her heart belongs to Westley (Cary Elwes). The wedding plans are interrupted by a mysterious pirate, a vengeful Spaniard, and a good-natured giant in a tale full of swashbuckling, romance, and outrageously hilarious spoofery.
This event is free. Accessible seats are available; for information, call 413-549-0524
