October 15, 5:45 pm - 9:00 pm
Date: Friday, October 15, 5:45-9pm
Beloved by millions, The Princess Bride manages to be endearing, scary, and funny, all at the same time. While at its core, the film is a cheesy love story with Robin Wright in the title role, the narrative centers around an odyssey taken by her true love, a farmhand, who sets off to rescue the princess from an arranged marriage to the evil Prince Humperdinck. Directed by Rob Reiner, the film deploys an interesting device in that the story unfolds through the eyes of a sick child as his grandfather reads to him the original story of The Princess Bride. Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion.
