Even in a career as illustrious as that of Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman (Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid, 1969; All The President’s Men, 1976), The Princess Bride occupied a special place in his affections, as it does for its devoted fans. Beautiful Buttercup (Robin Wright) is forced to marry the local prince, and must forego her love for disappeared farmhand Westley (Cary Elwes). When she is kidnapped just before the wedding, she is rescued by a mysterious stranger quickly revealed to be the returning Westley, but the pair face numerous obstacles to being permanently reunited. That you would not take this opportunity to see this deft mixture of comedy, action, and romance as you wish on IFI@Home is inconceivable.
